My role in college
I have just joined Regent’s Park (October 2020) as a part-time Lecturer in Classical Languages. My main duties are organising and delivering language teaching to our Classics and Joint Schools undergraduates. I also take part in admissions for Classics and Joint Schools, and oversee the delivery of classical language provisions in college.
When I am not teaching, I am finishing my DPhil with the Faculty of Classics, on formulaic variation and linguistic productivity in early Greek epic. I am interested in quantitative linguistics, Distributional Semantics, discourse analysis applied to ancient languages, and Imperial Greek literature. In the future, I hope to pursue a research project on disability in the Imperial reception of Greek myth.
