BA Classics (Durham), MA Classics (Durham), PhD Latin Literature (Cambridge)
My primary research interest is Latin epic, especially Flavian epic (written under the emperor Domitian). My first book was on the characterisation of Hannibal in Silius Italicus' epic, Punica (Liverpool, 2014) and I am now working on the representation on Jupiter in Flavian poetry and Culture. I am also interested in Reception Studies, especially using the medium of film (I have also worked - briefly! - as a researcher for the TV/Film industry). I co-run the Flavian Literature and Culture Network in collaboration with the Emma Buckley (St Andrews) and Antony Augoustakis (University of Illinois).
