Research interests

‌My research focuses on ancient historical thinking, and on how both Romans and Greeks used history as a medium for reflection. My monographs and shorter pieces explore the interplay between myth and history, and the role of history in shaping ideology at Rome. My work on Dionysius of Halicarnassus has also been influential. I work too in the field of Classical Reception, especially in the eighteenth century, and on ancient gender and our own interaction with it. My next big project centres on Roman ideas of materialism, and is supported by a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship, which ran from 2014-2017.

In 2018 I took part in an episode of the radio series, The Digital Human, talking about ancient oracles. You can listen to the episode here.
