I earned my Ph.D. in Historical Musicology at Columbia University in 2010. My dissertation, entitled "Modernity's Hearing Loss: Beethoven, Romantic Critique, and the Music of the Literary," traces historical and structural connections between the literary theory of Jena romanticism, the consolidation of print culture in Europe around 1800, and the paradigm of musical form that emerges in Beethoven's early piano sonatas. Currently I am a Postdoctoral Fellow/Lecturer at the Columbia University Society of Fellows in the Humanities for 2010-13. A native of Argentina, I got a "Licenciatura" in Piano Performance from the School of Music at Universidad Nacional de Rosario. I first came to the United States in 2000 on a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue Master's degrees in Piano Performance and Music History at Bowling Green State University. During my tenure at the Columbia Society of Fellows I plan to investigate further lines of inquiry opened in my dissertation with the goal of developing the manuscript into a book.
