Before coming to Princeton, I studied classics at Harvard College (A.B. 2012), where I wrote a thesis on English translations of selected Horatian odes, and Corpus Christi College, Oxford (M.St. 2013), where my dissertation examined Vergil’s second eclogue and its critical and poetic reception history.
I am interested widely in Greek and Latin literature, but particularly in lyric poetry, pastoral poetry, and Augustan literature. I am also very interested in reception and translation studies, especially as regards the pastoral tradition, early modern poetry, and contemporary poetry. Broadly speaking, I am fascinated by the relationships between literature and the environment, politics and aesthetics, and writing and desire.
