Research Interests

Latin literature; Persius’ Satires; Early Modern Classical Reception

I have just completed my first book, The Solitude of Latin Literature in the Age of Virgil, with close readings of Cicero, Virgil, Horace, Propertius, and Ovid. I am currently involved principally in two large-scale projects: a commentary on Persius’ Satires, and a monograph on Dreaming in Latin from Ennius to Kepler.

Research Supervision

I supervise for multiple A-Caucus papers, and am currently taking on dissertation students in Latin literature and Classical Reception.
