I joined the Princeton Classics department in 2007 at the age of 20, fresh from receiving my B.A. from the University of Chicago. My senior thesis compared the self-defense speeches of Jason in Euripides' Medea and Helen in the Trojan Women. After spending a few years exploring the wider world of Classical literature, I returned to Attic Drama for my dissertation, provisionally titled "Dramatists in Dialogue: The Influence of Aristophanic Parody on Euripides". In the dissertation I examine Aristophanes' Acharnians and Thesmophoriazusae as pieces of influential literary criticism and explore the effect that this criticism had on Euripides' later tragedies, especially the Helen and the Bacchae. Although I seem to keep coming back to Euripides, my research interests span Greek poetry more broadly, from the Archaic to the Hellenistic periods and onward to the reception of Greek poetry in Latin prose.
