Personal Bio


My name is Natalie, and I am a third year graduate student in Musicology, interested in music theory and cognition. I came to Princeton directly from my undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin, where I earned degrees in music and linguistics. My favorite aspect of graduate school is the ability to work on interdisciplinary questions, combining my interests from all across disciplinary boundaries.

Fun Fact

I love to crochet and am currently working on a sweater for my dog, Kida! I’m starting to try out knitting and other crafty hobbies in my spare down time as well.

Research Pitch

I am interested in music theory and cognition, specifically the intersection of music, language, and multimedia. I use techniques such as musical analysis and behavioral experiments to question how we perceive music and why we like it. For example, I have been analyzing music from video games and reality television to understand the role such music plays in shaping our perception. By using interdisciplinary methods and questions, I love to think about the role music plays in shaping our perception and how it influences our daily lives in ways we would never expect.
