Research interests

The main focus of my work is Virgil’s epic poem, the Aeneid. I am interested in Virgil’s representation of character and the ways in which he uses characters to talk about the past and future of the Roman people. I also work on the commentary tradition on Virgil, from late antiquity to the present, and on the influence of the Aeneid on later writing, from Renaissance Italy, to the Golden Age of detective fiction and beyond.

Teaching and supervision

  • LATN1601 / LATN2621 (Introduction to Latin 2 / Reading Latin 2) Semester 2, 2016
  • LATN3602 (Virgil’s Aeneid) Semester 2, 2015

Current projects

My major new project is a commentary on Virgil, Aeneid 8 (proposed for the Cambridge Classical Texts and Commentaries series).
