My current doctoral research focuses on historical and contemporary views of the orchestral oboist's Tuning A, and how having this role has influenced the identity of oboe players. My lecture recital, Playing the Tuning Game, is upcoming in Winter 2019. More details coming soon.
Other areas of interest include oboe pedagogy, performance psychology, and creative concert programming. In the 2018-19 year, I look forward to being part of the 1010 Collective as ensemble-in-residence at Simon Fraser University's School for the Contemporary Arts. We will be working with student composers to create new, boundary-pushing works for creative combinations of instruments.
