Her research and teaching interests include ear training and music theory pedagogy; post-tonal music; avant garde, experimental and fringe art; and gender and sexuality. She holds a BM in violin from the Eastman School of Music, an MM in theory from New England Conservatory, and a PhD in theory from Harvard University, where she studied with David Lewin, David Cohen, Chris Hasty, and Alex Rehding.
