As an undergraduate I studied Ancient and Modern History at Balliol College (2005-2008). I then went on to do the Masters in Greek and Roman History at Balliol (2008-2010), where I wrote a thesis on the role of geography in Quintus Curtius Rufus' Historiae Alexandri Magni. During the MPhil, I also got the opportunity to explore the social and economic history of the Hellenistic world and to learn the disciplines of epigraphy and papyrology. For my DPhil in Ancient History at New College (2010-2013) I became interested in how to write history with geography, and ultimately I wrote a thesis about processes of regional integration on Lesbos and in the Troad. After finishing my doctorate, I was a Junior Research Fellow in Classics at The Queen's College (2013-2016), during which time I developed an interest in what the evidence of coins can tell us about regional dynamics.
