I grew up in New York City and started studying at Princeton in 2012. My main areas of interest are Greek, Roman, and humanistic historiography; the interactions between Roman literature, politics, and culture in the early Imperial period; and the rediscovery and reinvention of antiquity in the Renaissance.
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 7 as a history within the History.
After Oxford, I spent a year leading historical and cultural walking tours in Rome and teaching English to Italians as a second language. In 2010, I moved back to the States and taught Latin and Greek at the Marymount School of New York for two years until beginning at Princeton.
