I conduct research on literary and musical intermediality.  I studied vocal performance at the Conservatoire de Musique du Québec à Montréal before completing degrees in English, Comparative Literature, and Theory & Criticism.  My work broadly focuses on vocal remediation in literature, film, and opera.  My research has been published in journals of literary criticism, musicology, performance and film studies, and aesthetics.  Before teaching at Oberlin College, I was a guest researcher in Comparative Literature at Utrecht University. Alongside my academic career, I am also an administrator of charitable organizations dedicated to the advancement of classical music.
