Biography

My love of Greek and Latin led me here. And poetry.

Research Interests

My training is in the literature of the late Roman Republic and Early Empire. I am especially interested in the ethics of Epicureanism and Stoicism and how these are coopted in literature. I am also interested in how philosophers and poets conceptualize human bodies to exemplify notions of honor, virtue, femininity, masculinity, and morality. Sometimes I write about the New Testament as well.

Teaching Interests

Teaching the Iliad and Odyssey and other epic poems is a pretty good gig.
