  • Graduate Student, Musicology

I am a graduate student in the musicology department. I received a BA in Music from New York University in 2015. I have presented papers at numerous conferences on topics ranging from Alban Berg's "Lyric Suite" to black metal music in the United States. My future projects look to be on masking and ritual in contemporary Scandinavian black metal, as well as the concept of Götterdämmerung/Ragnarok as it exists across time and space in many different musics.
