A Bit About Me

I'm Lauren: a sonic researcher, sound media producer, and PhD student in the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto. My current research interests include: acoustic ecology, decolonial / anticolonial media studies, and sensorial ethnography. As an artist I also work across and between various mediums, often utilizing sound as a tool to engage in environmental, political, and social discourse.

I am also a freelance writer working for various magazines, blogs, ebooks, and newsletters! If you'd like to work together, please get in touch
