Lindsay’s work centers broadly on how (and why) people relate to music. She uses a wide range of data analytic techniques in order to do this, including traditional music theoretic analysis, corpus studies, computational methods, behavioral studies, pharmacological procedures, and psychophysical methods. Her aim is to employ different kinds of data analysis to tell stories about why we love music.
