jonathan de souzaJonathan De Souza is an assistant professor, specializing in music theory and cognition.

De Souza received a PhD in music theory and history from the University of Chicago, an MMus from Royal Holloway, University of London, and a BMus from Western University. He joined the faculty at Western in 2013.

His research explores questions about music, embodiment, and technology, combining music theory with cognitive psychology and phenomenology. He is currently working on a book project—tentatively titled Music at Hand: Instruments and Embodied Cognition—that examines how interactions between instruments and performers’ bodies ground particular ways of perceiving and imagining music.
