Academic Background

I have been variously studying, researching and teaching in Oxford since I turned up as a Classics II student in 2006. I wrote my doctorate on the reception of Cicero in the early empire under the supervision of Llewelyn Morgan and began my teaching career at my old college, Brasenose. Last year I worked at St Anne's College and am delighted to be moving to St Hilda's in Michaelmas Term 2017 in my capacity as a Departmental Lecturer in Latin Literature and Roman History.

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.

Research Keywords

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


Undergraduate: I teach most Latin literature courses offered in Classics, alongside providing language classes in Greek and Latin. I also teach a variety of Roman history papers.

Graduate: My specialism lies in the literature and history of the late Roman Republic and early Empire.
