About me

I am a researcher, writer, teacher and curator originally from Hamilton, New Zealand. I received my B.A. in Classics and Mathematics followed by an M.A. in Ancient History from the University of Auckland. Since 2016 I have been a graduate student in the Department of the Classics at Harvard University. Awarded an A.M. in Classical Philology in 2018, I am currently writing a dissertation for a Ph.D. in Classical Philology with a secondary field in Comparative Literature. Over the 2021–22 academic year I am completing the Regular Program at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens as the Michael Jameson Fellow.

I am broadly interested in culture, literature and art, with a particular emphasis on Greco-Roman antiquity and in the ways that we make meaning from and about the past. My research and teaching focus primarily on the following areas:

  • Greek and Latin literature of the Roman period
  • Archaic and classical Greek poetry
  • Social and cultural history
  • Classical reception in literature, art and politics
  • Modern Greek literature and culture
  • Art and archaeology of the ancient Mediterranean
  • World literature and comparative literature
  • Literature, art and culture and collective identity
  • Literary and critical theory
  • Space and place in cultural production
