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 (MT 2014) I am lecturing on Virgil's Aeneid, and on Russell's Anthology of Latin Prose.
