I am presently a doctoral student at the Department of Cultural Sciences at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. I received a B.A. in Biology from Swarthmore College in 1997 and worked as a pipemaker and clavichord builder at the Research Workshop of the Göteborg Organ Art Center (GOArt) before taking up doctoral studies in 2005.
My research interests include the history of music and musical technologies, in particular the design and production of keyboard instruments in the early modern period. The working title of my dissertation is “Johann Andreas Stein’s 1781 Claviorganum and the Construction of Art in 18th-Century Augsburg.”
