I am a freelance researcher and consultant working in the arts and cultural sector, based in London, UK. I am also a Research Fellow on the Boosting Resilience executive learning programme in the Centre for Creativity in Professional Practice at Cass Business School. Outside of work, I am a Trustee of Camden People’s Theatre, an ACE National Portfolio Organisation supporting young and emerging artists making inventive new theatre, and Magpie Dance, an award-winning charity that supports and empowers people with learning disabilities through inclusive dance programmes across Bromley, South East London, and Kent.
Previously, I was a Consultant at BOP Consulting, an international consultancy with a 20-year track record of working in culture and the creative economy. I also have extensive professional experience across the arts and cultural sectors in the UK and Canada, including at Help Musicians UK, National Foundation for Youth Music, London Chamber Orchestra, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Canadian Music Centre, and Royal Conservatory of Music.
I completed a PhD in Music at the University of Cambridge, with the support of a Gates Cambridge Scholarship and a Doctoral Fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. I also hold an MA in Music Theory from McGill University and a BA in Music (Honours) from Columbia University. My research has been supported by over 20 grants and awards, and I have published and presented internationally in the UK, US, Canada, and Germany.
