About

I am an ethnomusicologist and a performer of Azerbaijani mugham. Currently, I hold a SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada) postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University’s Department of Music, where I am in the process of completing and editing my manuscript. In my research, I rely on theoretical frameworks from phenomenology and affect theory to investigate the creativity of Azerbaijani mugham as a realm of emerging post-Soviet identities.
