I am a musicologist and librarian-archivist. I teach courses on music history, film music, and music pedagogy at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Before joining CUHK, I was employed by Naxos International, the University of Hong Kong, McGill University, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Much of my work concerns music and migration, especially transatlantic migration in the nineteenth century. As a film music scholar, I am interested in how composers adapt the conventions of the past, and how subtexts can be created through diegetic music.
