Simple about

I’m an assistant professor of musicology at the University of Maryland’s School of Music. My research primarily focuses on contemporary classical music in the United States: my dissertation was on the “indie classical” movement, and my  book about the organization Bang on a Can came out recently. I also write frequently for publications such as the New York Times and New Yorker, tweet quite a bit as @seatedovation, and host a podcast called Sound Expertise.
