I am a Staff Tutor and Lecturer in Music at the Open University, where I also tutor on an interdisciplinary module.
I studied Music at Merton College, Oxford, and completed my PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London, on the role and status of music in British Universities c. 1830-1900. I built on this research in my book published with Ashgate in 2013: Music and Academia in Victorian Britain.
In addition to my interests in the history of music education, I have explored topics connected with the status and identity of music in the nineteenth century, including the music profession.
