New College, Oxford
I am departmental lecturer in Latin language and literature at the University of Oxford, and a fellow of New College.
My research interests include Epicureanism and its Roman history, early Roman
linguistic thought, and philosophy in Imperial Greek literature. I am currently
completing a book on Lucretius, and preparing my next project, on the first dialogue of Cicero's De Finibus.
In addition to these projects, I have papers in preparation on Cynic
ethics in Lucian, Lucretius' terminology for concepts, and the
behaviour of the Latin word 'alius'.
