I am a Hellenist who focuses on the intersection of literature and philosophy in Greek authors, particularly the ways that literary authors respond to philosophical critiques and incorporate philosophical ideas and allusions into their works. I am also interested in issues of translation and the history of Classical scholarship.
I enjoy teaching Greek language and literature at all levels, as well as courses in translation (Classical Mythology, Greek Civilization, and Ancient Warfare). Through these courses, I encourage students to discover modes of thought and analytical skills they can use to understand the contemporary world and pursue their individual goals.
