My research focuses on intertextuality and musical meaning in 19th- and 20th-Century Austrian and German Music, specifically in the works of Gustav Mahler and Richard Wagner. My PhD thesis (2021) explored the musical parallels between Mahler's Ninth Symphony and Wagner's Parsifal, and drew on theories of analysis, topic theory, intertextuality, and the transference of aesthetics. My latest research project focuses on representations of gender and sexuality in Mahler's symphonies.
I am Deputy Director and Co-Founder of the Institute of Austrian and German Music Research (IAGMR) at the University of Surrey, Founder and ECR Leader of the Gustav Mahler Research Centre Postgraduate Forum (GMRC), and Team Lead for the Equality Diversity and Inclusion in Music Studies Network (EDIMS). In 2021 I was appointed as a member of council for the Royal Musical Association (RMA) and the Society for Music Analysis (SMA).
