I am a Classicist whose research challenges traditional narratives of literary history at the interface of Greek and Latin literature and scholarship. I work widely across archaic and classical Greek literature, Hellenistic poetry, and Latin literature, focusing especially on questions of politics, aesthetics and intertextuality.
I am currently a a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Oxford Classics Faculty and a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford.
Before that, I was a Stipendiary Lecturer in Classics at Wadham College, Oxford (2021-2022), an Affiliated Lecturer in the Faculty of Classics at Cambridge (2020-2021), and a Research Fellow in Classics at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge (2018-2021).
In addition to my research and teaching, I am co-editor of the CUCD Bulletin and on the editorial advisory board of Hellenistica Groningana.

Beyond academia, I am also passionate about dance and music. As a Ballroom and Latin dancer, I have represented England and Cambridge internationally in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Poland and China, and as a member of XS Latin Cambridge, I have been a UK Champion, British Champion, WDC European Champion and WDSF World Championship Semi-finalist in Latin Formation Dancing (2017, 2019). While completing my PhD, I represented the University of Cambridge in Dancesport and had the honour of captaining the team to an undefeated year at home and abroad in 2016-2017. I am also an enthusiastic social Cuban Salsa and Rueda dancer. In the past, I have played the French Horn in a number of orchestras and have performed in venues ranging from the Royal Albert Hall (London) and Sheldonian Theatre (Oxford) to St. Mark's Cathedral (Venice).
