I have obtained my BA, MA and rMA at the University of Amsterdam, with exchanges to Queen's University Belfast, and the University of Sydney for which I was awarded the Horizon Scholarship. I participated in the Computational Ethnomusicology Lorentz Workshop (2017), was co-organiser of the IASPM & RMA Student Conference at the University of Amsterdam in 2017, and was guest-speaker at the Christchurch Student Colloquium at the University of Oxford in 2017. My current MPhil/PhD research project at SOAS is titled "Activism and Urbanism in Contemporary Indigenous Music-Making in Australia."
