Research interests

My research interests centre on hermeneutic and narratological approaches to the analysis of early twentieth-century music.

My current research is focused on Maurice Ravel's ballet Daphnis et Chloé, which I am investigating from the perspectives of gender and narrative, in particular, the manner in which the narratively disruptive features of the work contribute towards a modernist interrogation of narrative structures and their associated value systems.
