Academic Background

I am interested in ancient Greek, Latin, Anatolian and Indo-European linguistics, and in the Graeco-Roman grammatical tradition. I  have written on the prehistory of the Greek accentuation system, its contribution to historical linguistics and phonological theory, its description in ancient grammatical texts, and on relative clauses in Anatolian and early Greek. 

Teaching

I am available to supervise graduate students in Greek, Latin, and Indo-European linguistics, and in the Graeco-Roman grammatical tradition.
