Background and activities

I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Music, where I do research and teaching in musicology. My particular areas of expertise are ecomusicology and the role of music in the environmental humanities. 

In my current research I approach music and music-making as cultural technologies for the promotion of ecological literacy. I am especially interested in musical pathways towards sustainable models of human-nature relations, with a particular emphasis on the oceans.
