As a scholar, I have pursued two main areas of focus: audio pedagogy, and the relationship between composers and instruments. These areas connect in the act of listening—for both I am exploring how we listen, both as a technical skill and as a way of appreciating music. Currently, I am writing a book chapter about incorporating soundwalks in audio production courses.
