Exeter College, Oxford
I am a Latinist, teaching in the department of Classics at the University of Oxford, and at Exeter College. My research to date has been focused on the language, style, and literary form of Latin philosophical literature. I am also interested in Roman linguistic thought, and in the early development of Latin style.
