I am currently Visiting Assistant Professor of Religion at Washington and Lee University. I specialize in questions of identity, representation of difference, and contesting shared pasts, between Jews, Christians, and Samaritans in antiquity. My research work uses late ancient identity and self-fashioning as a laboratory space for the critical approaches of the scholar of religion, as well as exploring the resonance of ancient self-fashioning in scholarship and intellectual history after antiquity.

I teach Music Theory at the University of Michigan. My research focuses on the history of music theory (with an emphasis on theories of form), analysis (of tonal and post-tonal repertoires as well of world music), and sketch and source study. My current work, located at the intersection of music theory and music history, focuses on the music and writings of Arnold Schoenberg and the Second Viennese School. I recently started work on a corpus of Irish piping tunes from the 1800s, a project that will combine manuscript study with digital analysis of melodic structures. My work has appeared, or is forthcoming, in Music Theory Spectrum, Perspectives of New Music, the Journal of Music Theory, the Journal of the Arnold Schönberg Center, Music Theory & Analysis, Theory and Practice, Music Analysis, the Journal of the Society for Musicology in Ireland, and Notes, as well as in edited collections including The Routledge Companion to Music Theory Pedagogy, for which I am writing the anchor article on musical form. A former member of the Society for Music Theory’s Executive Board, I am now Reviews Editor of Music Theory Spectrum. I also serve on the editorial board of Music & Politics and the organizing committee for Analytical Approaches to World Music, and I am the co-chair of the SMT’s Autographs and Archival Documents Interest Group as well as 2019 program committee chair for Music Theory Midwest. In summer 2019 I will be Visiting Professor at the Institut für Musikwissenschaft und Interpretationsforschung, Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien.
