I began my PhD studies in Lund in September 2012. I have an MA in musicology from the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies at University of Copenhagen (2011) and in addition have studied for one year at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Besides musicology I have studied Russian language and culture. These subjects were combined in my master’s thesis on the reconstruction of the medieval Orthodox hymn tradition in contemporary Russia. This Orthodox cultural heritage is even the theme of my doctoral dissertation in musicology at the Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences at Lund University.
