A listener, writer, researcher and occasional sound artist, my focus is on urban sound research, site specific (sound)works and critical writing on audio culture. I studied music and then philosophy as an undergrad at Bard College in NY and completed a Sound Studies masters degree at the UdK (University of Arts) in Berlin. There I specialized in Auditory Culture under Sabine Sanio and Experimental Sound Installation under Sam Auinger.
Currently a PhD candidate with Recomposing the City, research group led by Dr. Gascia Ouzounian and Dr. Sarah Lappin at Queen’s University in Belfast. My project explores listening practices for city environments with an ear toward potentials of urban sound planning.
