I came to Princeton in 2007, having received a B.A. in Classics from Cambridge University (2005) and an M.St. in Greek and Latin Languages and Literature from Oxford University (2007). My dissertation, a study of exemplarity in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, offers an interpretation of the epic’s tales as models of behavior (exempla) for characters within the world of the poem. Besides Ovid, my research interests include Latin literature, the Ancient Novel, and animals in Greek and Roman thought and culture.
During my time here, I’ve been an instructor in Latin at both the introductory and intermediate level, and a preceptor in Classical mythology. I love teaching, and am currently a Head Fellow at the University Writing Center, where I work with students to improve their academic writing skills and am a mentor to other writing tutors.
