I’m PhD candidate at the Musicology Program in Princeton University interested in Music Theory and Music cognition. I’m mostly interested in how humans derive meaning from harmonic structures in music. I also participate in work being done at the Music Cognition Lab.
I got my undergraduate education at the State University of Sao Paulo, in my hometown of Sao Paulo, Brazil, majoring in Composition. I have a Masters degree in Music from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, where I did research on metaphors for the understanding of harmony. I play electric guitar, as well as a little piano, and have taught both for a long time. I’ve played in many bands and have experience as a gigging musician in Sao Paulo and Rio. I occasionally write music and I love jamming with friends.
