I'm a PhD candidate in the Critical and Comparative Studies program at UVA's Department of Music. I received my BA in Music from the University of Redlands (2016). My research interests include the intersections of race and gender in music performance. The topic of my dissertation is representations of women of color in Broadway musicals, focusing particularly on "colorblind" or race-conscious casting in the past decade. I'm interested in the reparative possibilities of disidentification, after the work of scholars like Jose Esteban Muñoz. Apart from dissertation writing, I also work as the PhD+ Intern for the DH Certificate Program Management.
