About

I finished my Ph.D. in musicology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in May 2018. I completed my B.A. in Music with a focus in conducting at Stanford University in 2009 and M.M. in Orchestral Conducting at The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. in 2011. I remain an active viola player, singer, and conductor. I was fortunate to be the recipient of a Fulbright grant to the Czech Republic during 2014–15 to work on my dissertation, which focuses on Czech comic opera, gender, and conceptions of the rural. I held a Howard Mayer Brown Fellowship from the American Musicological Society for the 2016–17 academic year. I am currently a Council for European Studies Mellon Dissertation Completion Fellow for 2017–2018, with a concurrent appointment to the editorial committee of the online journal EuropeNow. My article “Bohemian Rhapsodist: Antonín Dvořák’s Píseň bohatýrská and the Historiography of Czech Music” was published in 19th-Century Music in 2016 and a second, “An Operatic Locarno: The Paris Premiere of Smetana’s The Bartered Bride and Czechoslovak-French Cultural Diplomacy,” has recently been published with Cambridge Opera Journal. I will be joining the Department of Music at NYU as an Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow through the Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in the fall of 2018.
