Originally from New York City, I am interested mainly in Greek and Roman historiography and the interactions between Roman literature, politics, and culture in the early Imperial period. I studied Classics at Harvard (A.B. 2008), with a thesis on how Horace draws on the Ciceronian discourse of ideal friendship to portray his relationship with Maecenas, and was the Harlech Scholar at New College, Oxford (M.St. 2009), where I wrote my dissertation on Nicias’ letter in Thucydides VII as a history within the History.
After Oxford, I led personalized historical and cultural walking tours in Rome and taught English to Italians as a second language. In 2010, I moved back to the States to teach Latin and Greek to the 9th- through 12th-grade girls at the Marymount School of New York until beginning at Princeton in 2012. I have enjoyed return trips to Italy to participate in a Vergilian Society workshop and archaeological tour with other AP Latin teachers in 2011 and to co-teach the Paideia Institute’s Living High School Latin in Rome summer course in 2012.
