My dissertation addresses Platonic and Neoplatonic thought in the works of Macrobius, with a special focus on questions of translation in the Late Antique Latin West.  I have previously worked on theatrical metaphor in fourth-century CE Greek prose, the culture of bookshops and book buying in Aulus Gellius, and the reception of Livy in the works of Augustine.  My broader research interests include the intellectual and literary history of Late Antiquity, and the intersection between politics, policy, and the cultural heritage in the twenty first century.
