Curriculum Vitae:

I am a doctoral candidate in sociology at the University of California, San Diego. I use both quantitative and qualitative methods to study cultural markets and cultural policies around the world with a specific focus on music. I am now focusing on my dissertation project, which examines how artistic diversity and creativity are shaped by social and political institutions in the digital era.
