Andrea is a doctoral student at The Ohio State University, where she serves as a graduate teaching associate in music theory. Andrea’s research interests include the use of modal and pentatonic motives in rock and metal music, as well as cultural phenomena reflected through musical language in works by Mexican and Latin American composers. Most recently, she has become interested in the relationship between music and the body after collaborating with dancers. Andrea is also an active pianist who enjoys performing. She was invited to perform alongside Colombian percussionist Johanna Amaya and clarinetist Michelle Camargo; together, they wish to honor and share Latin American music with their audiences.
