Research Interests

I work on ancient Greek literature, with particular interests in Old Comedy and the history of the poetry book. My current book project argues that there was a period of intense and bold formal experimentation in Old Comedy of the generation before Aristophanes, centred around the now-obscure playwright Crates. My other published work has investigated everything from the structure of Hellenistic epigram anthologies to ideas of hybridity, literary inheritance, and authorial self-positioning in the iambographers Semonides and Hipponax. My most recent article look at poetic uses of excessive repetition across Greek literature.

I hold an MPhil (2011) and PhD (2017) from the University of Cambridge, where I was supervised by Dr Renaud Gagné (MPhil) and Prof. Richard Hunter (PhD). My Bachelor’s degree is from the Liberal Arts College at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, where my thesis was supervised by Prof. Sean Gurd (now University of Missouri).

Together with Prof. Raffaella Cribiore (NYU), I am organiser of the 69th Entretiens sur l’antiquité classique at the Fondation Hardt in 2022.
