Research interests

I specialize in Greek comedy and tragedy, while I am also broadly interested in ancient medicine, magic, gender and sexuality, and theories of humour. I have an ongoing interest in performance and theatre practice, and have worked closely with the Glasgow University Classics society for the production of several classically-themed plays.
