I am an independent, London-based musicologist with a PhD in Historical Musicology from Goldsmiths, University of London. My own research and writing are centred on England’s creative  cultures during the so-called ‘long eighteenth–century’ and its European connections.

I am also a musician – performer & teacher – primarily of the pipe organ and piano. I studied organ and choral conducting on the Advanced Post-graduate Perfomers course at the Royal Academy of Music, London, and have a Masters degree in Liturgical Music from APU Cambridge. I hold a Bachelors degree in Education with Qualified Teacher Status (more …) from King Alfred’s College (now the University of Winchester), as well as the diploma for organ performance from the Royal College of Music (ARCM with honours), and the diploma for organ teaching from the Royal Academy of Music (LRAM).

In addition, I have many years of experience as a research-project manager, formerly at UCL where I worked for Professor Michael Worton  (Vice-Provost) to establish and then manage the UCL Mellon Programme and currently at Birkbeck, University of London. Here I work for Professor Anthony Bale (Executive Dean of Arts)  establishing and managing the Leverhulme-funded International Networks project Pilgrim Libraries: books & reading on the medieval routes to Jerusalem & Rome.

Thus my professional academic-project research/writing work has ranged from the Medieval period to the Modern across a wide variety of discplines: fine art, French studies, gender & sexuality, history, liteature, music, politics, sociology, theatre & theology.

I am experienced in book and journal editing and working with commerical online publishing platforms, with a successful record of producing original materials for a wide range of broadcast, print, performance and social-media projects
