In my research, I have sought to take a multidisciplinary approach to understanding how creation, consumption, and censorship—in music and media alike—shape and reveal dichotomies of identity, authority, and power within and across cultures.

After graduating from Wellesley College, I received a 2014-2015 Thomas J. Watson Fellowship to study musical manifestations of multiculturalism in China, Indonesia, and Turkey. I then completed a MSc in Politics and Communications from the London School of Economics in 2016. After completing a MMus in Music Performance from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance this summer, I will enter the PhD program in Ethnomusicology at Harvard University in the fall of 2018.
