    BioI am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer at Stanford University. I previously taught at The San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I received my postgraduate degrees from The University of California, Berkeley (Ph.D. in Music History, 2018), where I held the Alfred Lepawsky Fellowship at the Doreen B. Townsend Center for the Humanities, and The University of Cambridge (M.Phil. in Music, 2012), where my studies were supported by fellowships from The British Library, National Sound Archives, and Frank Huntington Beebe Foundation. I received my A.B. in Music History and Theory from The University of Chicago in 2011, where I was a Collegiate Fellow and recipient of two departmental prizes, as well as departmental and general honors.

    I work in and across three research areas: opera; music and the environment; and music and the history of science and technology. My work demonstrates how scientific knowledge reshaped musical practices and aural cultures in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, particularly in Germany. I maintain a strong secondary interest in public musicology, particularly in how music and its institutions can respond to today’s most urgent social problems, including climate change and social justice. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in journals including The Cambridge Opera Journal, The Opera Quarterly, The Journal of the Royal Musical Association, and The Journal of the American Musicological Society. I am currently guest-editing a special issue of 19th-c. Music ("Music and the Invention of Environment in the Long Nineteenth Century"), to which I am also contributing work, and am writing a book entitled "Richard Wagner's Political Ecology: Sound, Environment, and the History of Deep Media."
