While At UCLA

I am excited about exploring East African culture and history through a modern and ancient music-focused lens. My specific project is to help expand / upgrade the archiving capacity and indigenous instrument curriculum for Ethiopia's Yared School of Music (Addis Ababa University) and have this work be transferable to other African universities.

After UCLA

I am interested in 1) pursuing my Ph.D and 2) lecturing at the University level, researching, doing field recordings and writing after my studies.
