Biography

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, where I work on music in the late mediaeval Habsburg courts (www.malmecc.eu). I also direct a project on the chapel of Maximilian I Habsburg at the University of Vienna. My research focusses on learned culture in the Renaissance, especially the links between musical thought, theology, philosophy and medicine. My PhD dissertation in musicology (University of Melbourne) focussed on the German reception of the musical thought of Marsilio Ficino (1433–1499). My PhD dissertation in history (Leiden) was a study of the political and cultural implications of the New Testament edition of Erasmus. I have also been one of the editors of the online database Verzeichnis deutscher Musikfrühdrucke / Catalogue of early German printed music (www.vdm16.sbg.ac.at) since its inception in 2012.
