I completed my BA and MPhil in Classics at the University of Cambridge (2011-2015), before moving to the University of Oxford to pursue a DPhil in Ancient History (2015-2018). I spent the 2018-2019 academic year as a Lecturer in Ancient History at Somerville College, Oxford.
My research focuses on the social and cultural history of the ancient Roman world. My current book project, entitled Music, Spectacle and Society in Ancient Rome, explores the role of music in the development of Roman society from the conquest of Greece in the second century BCE to the death of the emperor Nero in 68 CE. I am also interested in Roman theatre and spectacle more broadly, as well as the history of slavery and the non-elite. My next project looks at the organisation of the Games and its impact on the social, political and economic life of Roman cities.
