Hello! Welcome to my website. I received my PhD in Classics from the University of Southern California in 2016. I am returning to my home state of Michigan to take up a position as Lecturer in Classics at Hillsdale College for the 2017-2018 year. My research focuses on representations of divine speech in Greek and especially Latin literature. You can see my CV here and a short description of my primary research interests here.

I have taught Greek and Latin at multiple levels and a range of general education courses. Although my research leans towards the Roman side, I love teaching Greek literature as well, especially Plato and Greek tragedy, in the original language. I am passionate about cultivating the skills of literary and cultural analysis that I use in my research in the classroom.

I am also the host of the podcast Itinera, in which I interview classicists about how they got to where they are. This series will be released this fall. The Itinera website is coming soon.
