Research Interests: 
My research interests include Roman biography, historiography, and political thought. The aim of my dissertation, on Suetonius' De Vita Caesarum, is to describe Suetonius’ organizational and structural methods and explicate how they contribute to his analysis of the imperial political regime. I am also interested in Latin prose style, textual criticism, and the history of formalist approaches to literature, both ancient and modern.
