He holds a PhD in musicology with a minor in music theory from the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music, and has also received degrees from Università degli Studi di Milano (MA, musicology; BA, cultural heritage studies) and the Conservatorio di Novara (piano diploma).

He has presented his work at meetings of the Society for Eighteenth-Century Music, chapters of the American Musicological Society, the Gesellschaft für Musiktheorie, the European Music Analysis Conference, and the Music and Philosophy Study Group of the Royal Musical Association. In 2019 his alma mater invited him to deliver a talk for the Thinking About Music Lecture Series.
