Lindsay Warrenburg

Lindsay Warrenburg received her Ph.D. in Music (Theory, Cognition, and Perception) in December 2019. Her dissertation, Subtle Semblances of Sorrow: Exploring Music, Emotional Theory, and Methodology, explores how and why people perceive and experience emotions from music listening, with an emphasis on sad music. The dissertation incorporates a diverse number of methodologies, including literature reviews, a new model of emotion, a database she created of over 22,000 musical stimuli, various behavioral studies, and multiple theoretical perspectives.

Lindsay founded and co-chairs (with Lindsey Reymore) the Music & Science Colloquium and Teaching Series (MASCATS).
