I'm a doctoral candidate in music composition and theory at NYU.

I love teaching music. I've taught music theory at NYU and the Harvard Extension School; experimental music at Eugene Lang College (The New School); and North Indian music, musicianship, composition, and symmetric harmony at the Walden School. In 2009 I received the Dean's Outstanding Student Teaching Award in the Humanities from NYU.

I also love making experimental music and videos. My recent projects include Schismatics, written for the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk); Ideomania, for the JACK Quartet; and five audiovisual pieces I composed, performed, and recorded with my friend Yoni Niv. For my creative work, I use the programs SuperCollider and Python.

I've received some fellowships to study interesting things. In 2004 the Beebe Fund gave me a fellowship to study tabla for a year in Varanasi. In 2008 the American Institute of Indian Studies gave me a fellowship to study Hindi for three months in Jaipur. From 2005–2010 I had a MacCracken fellowship from NYU, and last year I received a Dean's Dissertation Fellowship to finish a thesis on radical music theory in the Enlightenment. (I'll write it next year in California and Tel Aviv; for the moment, I'm working with David Sides to design the curriculum for The Playground Sessions.)
