Bio/Research

I received my PhD and MA in Communication Arts (Film Studies) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and my Honours BSc in Physics and Cinema Studies from the University of Toronto.

The main focus of my research is film sound and music. I’m interested especially in how changing technologies and industries have influenced the composition of film music and soundtrack design during two historical phenomena: Hollywood’s transition to sound in the late 1920s and the global diffusion of music synthesizers in the 1980s. I’m now working on a book-length history of electronic music in American cinema.
