Supervisor: Dr Torsten Meissner

College: Darwin

PhD Thesis Title (preliminary): The Augment in Greek and Indo-European: A Reconsideration"


I obtained my BA in Humanities from the University of Perugia, with an Erasmus year in Leeds, and my MA in Philology, Literature and Classical Tradition from the University of Bologna. For my PhD, I am currently investigating the use of the augment in the formulaic system of the Homeric language, and I intend to include in my research a comparison with Vedic texts, as well as a broader consideration of the morpho-syntactic attestations of the augment in Indo-European languages.
