My research addresses issues of disability and music/sound, including access to the physical and cognitive worlds of academe. I have published on depression and madness from the perspective of music/sound and am interested in traumatization and de-traumatization through music and sound.
I am interested in the intersections of accessibility and musicology/sound studies, whereby we can better understand how people with diverse disabilities access music and sound and the roles they play in facilitating access to wellbeing.
