I am associate professor in musicology. I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Copenhagen (2010). In addition, I am editor-in-chief of the online journal Seismograf.

My research explores historiographic, aesthetic, political and institutional issues within the fields of contemporary music, electronic music, sound and performance art in the 20th and 21st century. In my most recent research project, I studied the changing role of composers in the 21st century, with a particular focus on their stage performance in their own works. In this context, I also curated a concert with three premieres. For the moment being, I am beginning new research into Noise and Experimental music in Java.

I teach several of the subjects in Musicology. This semester I am responsible Early Music and Theory and Methods (MUVA02) and guest lecturing in Music production (MUVA51).
