Alex Bádue received his Ph.D. in musicology and M.M. in music history at the University of Cincinnati. He received his bachelor's degree in music at the Federal University of Paraná, in his native Brazil.

His main research examines musical-dramatic aesthetics, conventions, and originalities that different creators of musical theater have employed to create musicals in the 20th and 21st centuries.

This spring he published a short monograph titled Why Aren’t Talking? The Sung-Through Musical from the 1980s to the 2010s. Bádue also studies cultural and social contexts through which Latin and North America exchanged popular music in the 20th century. He is looking forward to teaching a course on the musical Hamilton at Hamilton College.
