My interests center on the ways in which ideologies of authorship and authenticity have shaped our understanding of music. In my current project these themes are explored through the history of compositional forgery.

I received my Ph.D. in Music from Harvard University, where I completed a dissertation entitled “Ringing False: Music Analysis, Forgery, and the Technologies of Truth” supported by an Alvin H. Johnson AMS 50 Fellowship.

Recent awards for my work include the American Musicological Society's Paul A. Pisk Prize (2015), a Harvard Horizons Scholarship (2017), and a DAAD Research Fellowship (2015–16).
