New College, Oxford
I am departmental lecturer in Latin language and literature at the University of Oxford, and a fellow of New College.
I am interested in philosophical texts written in Latin, in early Roman
linguistic thought, and in Hellenistic philosophy. I wrote my doctoral thesis on Lucretius and Epicurean linguistic theory, under the
supervision of Tobias Reinhardt. This term (TT 2015) I am lecturing on Lucretius' De Rerum Natura.
Lucretius and the Language of Nature, under contract with OUP.
