I received my B.A. from Swarthmore College in 2011, with Highest Honors in Greek and Latin, and entered the PhD program at Penn in the same year. A recipient of the US-UK Fulbright All-Disciplines Postgraduate Award, I spent 2015-16 at the University of Reading, where I translated the ancient scholia to the first book of the Iliad, under the supervision of Professor Eleanor Dickey. I spent the following two years at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, first as a Regular Member (2016-17), with the support of the James Rignall Wheeler Fellowship, and then as an Associate Member (2017-18), with the support of the Edward Capps Fellowship.
I am generally interested in long-form narratives, from archaic epic to the Roman novel, but I focus primarily on Homeric epic, narratology, and ancient literary criticism. I am currently completing my dissertation, “The Narrative of the Iliad: Time, Space, and Plot,” on the depiction and distribution of space and time in the Iliad, and a translation of the ancient scholia to the first two books of the Iliad, which is under contract with Cambridge University Press.
My writing has appeared in BMCR, Vergilius, YAGE, the SCSWebsite, and Eidolon, where I write a bi-monthly column, “Diacritical Remarks.” You can find all of my writing here.
