Frost School of Music at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. I recently finished my Ph.D in music theory at Florida State University. I also studied at the University of Western Ontario, where I earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Theory and Composition and a Master of Arts degree in music theory.
My research interests include music cognition, popular music analysis, atonal voice leading, and the music of Alfred Schnittke. My dissertation involved an investigation of harmonic expectation in twelve-bar blues progressions.
I have presented research on atonal music analysis, popular music, and music cognition at numerous regional and national conferences, including the South Central Society for Music Theory, Music Theory Southeast, the Music Theory Society of the Mid-Atlantic, Music Theory Midwest, the Society for Music Theory, the Society for Music Perception and Cognition, and the International Conference for Music Perception and Cognition.
