I am a musicologist and currently work as associate professor at the Centre for Privacy Studies at the University of Copenhagen and Rosenborg Castle as the PI of SOUND, an innovative research project aiming at listening, hearing and reconstructing the soundscapes of the Danish court. How did the past sound and how can we reconstruct it with immersive dynamic exhibitions? My research focuses on early modern music, sound and court studies, with a particular interest for performance and staging, the body on stage, cultural exchanges and gender studies.
I have held several positions and fellowships in Europe (Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, and France) and at leading institutions in the United States (Yale and Columbia Universities). These have given me the opportunity to develop new directions in research and to build a strong international network.
In my research and teaching, I strive not only to connect musical aesthetics and artistic practices to broader socio-cultural and political contexts, but also to connect historical research with the present, by focusing on topics that are relevant today, such as gender, migration, or contemporary opera stagings. My research has a wide impact, notably through my collaboration with several early music ensembles, and more recently with museums, in order to convey and share research in the unique forms of performance and exhibitions.
