Sarah is a music scientist, currently working as a postdoctoral fellow in the Cognitive Aging and Auditory Neuroscience Lab at Memorial University of Newfoundland.

In her spare time, Sarah accompanies the St. John’s Gay Men’s Chorus, dances Argentine tango and burlesque and volunteers with the Social Justice Cooperative of Newfoundland & Labrador’s Zero Waste Action Team. Sarah has been practicing a zero waste lifestyle since discovering the movement several years ago during her graduate studies in the UK and is working on tackling plastic pollution through research in St. John’s and the province of Newfoundland & Labrador more widely. She began sailing in 2016 when she signed up for the Asia Pacific Leg of the Clipper Round the World Race with no prior experience, and has been sailing as much as possible despite short summers and the COVID-19 pandemic!
