Research interests include:
- 17th-century English performance practices, particularly the use of wind instruments in secular and sacred spaces.
- The transmission and reception of continental musical thought and theory in 17th-century England, with particular emphasis on unwritten and improvised repertoires.
- Development and implementation of digital tools for historical pedagogy, including online approaches to collaborative music-making. Evidence of current activities in this field available here.
- Exploring the intersection between historical musicology and practice-led and action research with diverse communities, including teaching as research in the HE classroom.
