Personal profile

Research interests

My current research covers Soviet transnational opera discourse in the late 1930s. My doctoral project is seeking to construct a critical reappraisal of transnational opera and festival-making from a post-colonial and post-imperial perspective. This analysis is derived from a study of national dekadas (ten-day festivals) that occurred in Moscow from 1936.

I also have research interests in music analysis, as well as the composers Sergei Prokofiev, Aram Khachaturian, and Reingold Glière.


graduated from Royal Holloway in 2014 with a first-class honours degree in Music, with The Brian Dennis Memorial Prize in Composition. I was granted a Pocock Scholarship to complete a Master’s degree at Bristol University in Musicology, with a special research interest in Russia.
