jazz scholar & writer



Welcome! Thank you for visiting my site. I'm happy to have this chance to tell you a little about myself and my work. I am an ethnomusicologist, scholar of jazz performance, writer, and intermittent singer. I'm currently a fourth year PhD candidate in the ethnomusicology program at Harvard University. 

These days, I'm living in Brooklyn, NY, working on fieldwork for my thesis about singers in the contemporary jazz scene in New York city. I'm looking forward to using this site to share some of my materials. In these pages, on top of some information about me, you will find a blog "Voice Talk," and connections to musicians. (Check back soon for more fun features.) I'm working with a lot of wonderful musicians and I'm really happy to be able to share their awesome work. If you'd like, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to being in touch.
