I am a historical musicologist with interests in vernacular performance and urban geography. My work to date has focussed (not exclusively) on the long nineteenth century in Britain and France. I recently joined Newcastle from King's College London where I worked as a Research Fellow on an ERC-funded project "Music in London 1800-1851" (see musicinlondon.org). Prior to that I held a Junior Research Fellowship in Music at Lincoln College, Oxford. I am currently completing my first monograph, Music on the Move in Early Victorian London, and have also co-edited (with Katherine Hambridge, Durham) a collection of essays on early melodrama for University of Chicago Press. My new project considers the place of sound and music in the early town planning movement, specifically the Garden Cities envisaged and built by Ebenezer Howard and associates. I look forward to meeting new colleagues in my role as a NUHRI Fellow and would be delighted to hear from anyone with shared interests in music and (historical) urban geography.
