Mike Levine works as assistant professor of musicology at Christopher Newport University and received his Ph.D. in musicology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2022. His research utilizes ethnographic fieldwork conducted in Havana, Miami, and through digital platforms to investigate “el paquete semanal” (a popular USB-based internet platform in Cuba) and its relationship to media piracy and Cuban reparto music. He has written for the online sound studies publication "Sounding Out!", independent Cuban arts and literature magazine Hypermedia, a dossier on el paquete semanal published in the journal Cuban Studies, and published an article on the role of music in Cuba's J-11 protests in the journal Twentieth Century Music.
