|Assistant Professor in the Department of Classics and Ancient History||205|
|Member of the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies|
I joined the Department of Classics and Ancient History in 2021, having previously worked at Birkbeck, the CNRS at Aix-Marseille Université and King's College London.
I am an ancient historian; the focus of my research is the cultural and historical significance of Latin epigraphy, from antiquity to the present day. I am interested in how people – both ancient and modern – responded to Latin inscriptions, how their texts were composed and read, and what epigraphy contributed to the landscape of antiquity.
