I'm a Fellow of Homerton College, University of Cambridge, where I work on music.
My interests extend from the fin de siècle to the 21st century, with a focus on experimental music, the politics of mass culture, and the poetics of song. I've published essays on a broad range of topics from Steve Reich to folk and blues revivalism. I’ve also written shorter comment pieces on populism and alt-right paranoia in higher education. Forthcoming projects include a co-edited volume entitled Remixing Music Studies and a book on music and the utopian imagination.
I studied at the University of Cambridge (PhD 2015, King’s College), the University of York (MRes 2010), and the University of Oxford (BA 2009, Christ Church), where I received the Gibbs Prize.
Before taking up a four-year Junior Research Fellowship in January 2017 I spent a year as a Temporary Lecturer at Cambridge and received the Faculty of Music’s Teaching Prize for courses on 1960s countercultures and popular music of the black Atlantic.
