Chihiro has a B.A. in Political Science from Columbia University and an M.A. in Medieval Icelandic Studies from the University of Iceland. With generous funding from the Leifur Eiriksson Foundation, she attempted to reconstruct Viking Age music for her masters thesis by using Old Norse, Greek, Latin, Arabic, and archaeological materials. An avid musician, she is particularly interested in how music was used therapeutically during Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and is currently working towards becoming a Certified Clinical Musician.
