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 completed a MSc in Politics and Communications from the London School of Economics in 2016, and received MMus in Music Performance with Distinction from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2018. I will enter the PhD program in Ethnomusicology at Harvard University in the fall of 2018.
