I am a music theory PhD student at Yale University. My main focus of research is music cognition. I recently received a masters degree in psychology and worked with Dr. Peter Pfordresher in the the Auditory Perception and Action Lab at the University at Buffalo SUNY. I also have a masters degree in music theory from Bowling Green State University, and a bachelor of music composition from the University of Florida.
My most recent research involved metrical influences on the perception of melodic motives. Other interests include form and atonal analysis, as well as pedagogical applications.
I am also a composer and performer and am still active in both areas. Please feel free to browse my site for information about my work.
