I am associate professor in musicology and office director at Sound Environment Center. In addition, I am editor-in-chief of the online journal Seismograf.

I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Copenhagen (2010). My dissertation concerned the establishment of the Swedish electronic studio EMS. Since then, my research has concerned 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 Theory and Methods (MUVA22/62).
