Before joining UCL, I studied Classics on both sides of the Atlantic: at Wellesley (BA 2003), King’s College Cambridge (BA Hons 2005), and Princeton (MA 2008, PhD 2011). Following the completion of my doctorate at Princeton, I returned to Cambridge where I taught various topics in Classics and English at several colleges. Having been raised in New York, I am happy to be based once again in a global city and to join UCL starting September 2012.
My research interests range broadly across the spectrum of Greek literature and its afterlife: from fifth century tragedy, to the Greek literature of the Roman Empire, to the reception of classical drama in the modern world. I am currently completing a book on various playful and dynamic exchanges between chorus and actors in Greek Tragedy, which is based on my Princeton PhD dissertation, 'The Chorus in Dialogue'. With Thomas Coward (KCL) and Theodora Hadjimichael (LMU Munich) I am editing a volume on the interplay between Greek Lyric and Tragedy stemming from the recent Paths of Song conference at UCL. I have also begun another project on twentieth century re-imaginings of Greek tragedy and comedy in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean, and with Konstantinos P. Nikoloutsos (Saint Joseph's University, USA) I am organising a major international conference that will address the rich and varied afterlife of ancient Greek and Roman drama in Latin America.
At UCL I teach a range of courses on classical language, literature and
culture. Recent and future courses include:
Undergraduate: Interpreting Greek Literature (CLAS1205); Greek Tragedy (CLAS2106); Greek Comedy (CLAS7107); Intermediate Greek B (GREK2002); Greek Translation (GREK7009), Latin Translation (LAT7011)
Postgraduate (MA): Greek Drama 1, Sophocles: Oedipus and his children (CLASGG10A); Approaches to the Reception of the Classical World (CLASGR12), 'Key Theories and Methods for Reception Studies' and 'Reception within Antiquity: Greek' sessions
I am also the academic adviser for the Greek & Latin department’s annual Classical play at the Bloomsbury Theatre (2013: Euripides' Trojan Women; 2014: Aristophanes' Clouds).
