Her book On Repeat: How Music Plays the Mind (Oxford University Press) received the Wallace Berry Award from the Society for Music Theory, and the ASCAP Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Award. Her latest book The Psychology of Music: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford University Press) has been translated into Spanish, Hungarian, and Japanese. She is Director of the Music Cognition Lab at Princeton University and President of the Society for Music Perception and Cognition.

"As my career has moved between large public and smaller private institutions—and between the humanities and sciences—I’ve learned that navigating these contexts called on skills I’d never been explicitly taught. For graduate students, programs like GradFUTURES that can build these skills now will empower them to succeed even as the world around them changes."
