My current research explores issues of race and ethnicity, performance/construction of identity, cultural memory, trauma, and history as they intersect in lautareasca music, a Romani musico-oral tradition of Romania. Before coming to Stanford, I earned a B.A. in Music from Amherst College and spent a year researching and playing lautareasca music in Romania on a Fulbright. Other areas of interest include applied ethnomusicology, alternative epistemologies, critical theory and digital humanities.
