I am a performing musician and musicologist. Before coming to Cornell, I completed an undergraduate degree in music at Harvard University. I later worked in Boston as a freelance performer, focusing on early music and playing Baroque double bass, viola da gamba, and violone. I currently serve as a Graduate Resident Fellow at Cornell’s Hans Bethe House, while working on a dissertation studying the reception of Anton Webern’s music in the United States from the 1920s to the present. My other scholarly interests include music theory pedagogy, the intersection of performance and analysis, instruments, the music of Schütz and Schein, music and mountains, hip hop, and historical performance. If you would like to talk about any of these topics (or anything else, for that matter), feel free to drop me a line.
