  • Graduate Student, Ethnomusicology

I am a composer/theorist and a PhD student in Ethnomusicology, specializing in popular music, politics, power, and class formation in Uganda. I previously received a three-year Fulbright fellowship towards the completion of my PhD in Composition and Theory at the University of Pittsburgh, which I completed in 2012. Since then I have been a Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences Teaching Fellow. My most recent publication on bridging ethnomusicology and composition appeared in Analytical Approaches to World Music. I came to Pitt after completing an MA at Makerere University, where I am currently an Assistant Professor of Music Theory and Composition.
