The inter-disciplinary project, to be carried out with the support of the Faculties of Music and Law at the University of Cambridge, will examine the impact of copyright law on performers' everyday lives by attending to the interplay between musical performance, technology and law.

Her thesis Recording classical music: LSO Live and the transforming record industry discussed the values of classical music through its recording practices.
