Junior Research Fellow in Classics, Title A

Trinity College


I am currently a Junior Research Fellow (under Title A) at Trinity College Cambridge, following a year as Teaching Fellow for Latin at the University of Warwick. I completed my PhD at Cambridge and previously studied at Oxford (MSt) and St Andrews (MA). 

Research Interests

My research at present focuses on two forms of ancient poetry: lyric (esp. Horace, lyric time) and epigram (Greek, Latin, inscribed, literary). Throughout my research, I attempt to give equal attention to Greek and Latin material. I am also particularly interested in analysing poetry along other forms of ancient cultural production, such as artworks or calendars.

I am currently writing a book based on my PhD thesis which analyses the motif of carpe diem in Greek and Latin literature.
