I attained my BA and MA in Ancient History at the University of Manchester and went on to write my Ph.D. there on the epigraphic culture of the interstate shrine of Amphiaraos at Oropos. I have worked as Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Manchester (2014-2018), Associate Lecturer at the Manchester Metropolitan University (2016-2017), and Lecturer in Ancient History at Lancaster University (2019). I joined the Open University in 2019 as Lecturer in Classical Studies.
My research interests lie in ancient Greek history and particularly ancient Greek epigraphy. I am fascinated by the way in which inscriptional evidence may be interpreted as monumental discourse of interaction, which has been the focus of my recent research on the Amphiareion at Oropos in northeast Attica; I am currently working towards the completion of my monograph, Authority and Memory at the Oropian Amphiareion. I am also interested in how ancient audiences viewed inscriptions and how an inscription’s surface generated meaning irrespective of its content. This will be the focus of my next major project.
I have wide teaching experience in ancient Greek and Roman history and ancient Greek language. At the Open University, I am a member of the following module teams: Exploring the Classical World (A229), Reading Classical Greek: Language and Literature (A275), and MA Classical Studies Part 1 (A863).
