Prior to my arrival at St Anne’s I variously studied and taught Classics at Brasenose College, Oxford (2006-2016).


Undergraduate: I teach most literature courses offered in Classics, I also provide language classes in Greek and Latin.
Graduate: My specialism lies in the literature of the late Roman Republic and early Empire.

Research Keywords:

Latin Literature, especially Cicero; Roman History, especially Cicero; Ancient Philosophy, especially Cicero.

Research Interests:

My chief interests in the ancient world are the life and times of Marcus Tullius Cicero. My doctoral dissertation on his early reception is currently being prepared for publication by Oxford University Press.
