I am a doctoral candidate in ethnomusicology at Brown University with master’s degrees in American studies (University of Alabama) and ethnomusicology (Brown University).
My research and teaching interests include United States culture and politics, popular music reception, sound studies, digital media, and disability. I am particularly interested in gestures, listening norms, and bodily interactions with music playback devices.
My recent work appears in Ethnomusicology and American Quarterly, and I have an upcoming co-authored article appearing in Disability Studies Quarterly. I’ve taught courses at Brown University, Tufts University, and the University of Alabama.
I’m a karaoke enthusiast and working on my air guitar skills.
