A classicist and a linguist, I received my Ph.D. from Harvard in 2012. The title of my dissertation is "Historical Poetics and Language History: Studies in Archaic Greek Poetry". I work on Greek epic, lyric, iambic and elegiac poetry; early contacts between Greece and other cultures of the Near East; historical grammar and etymology; comparative poetics and mythology. In 2013 I joined Boston University as the Assistant Professor of Classical Studies. Since 2010 I have been a Resident Tutor for Linguistics and the Classics at Leverett House, Harvard College.
