I am an Associate Professor of Ethnomusicology at the University of Toronto. Most of my published work focuses on Iranian popular music in diaspora, especially in Los Angeles. My book Tehrangeles Dreaming: Intimacy and Imagination in Southern California’s Iranian Pop Music was published with Duke University Press in April 2020. I’m currently working on a collaborative project on music in Toronto’s Kensington Market in the context of the city’s music policy and rapid urban development.
