I am departmental lecturer in Latin language and literature at the University of Oxford, and a fellow of New College. My research interests include the history of Epicureanism, philosophy in the Roman Republic, and early Roman linguistic thought. I am currently completing a book on Lucretius, and preparing my next project, on the first dialogue of Cicero's De Finibus.
