My research interests focus on Greek literature and intellectual history. My doctoral thesis, 'Rulers in Greek Tragedy', which I recently completed at Oxford, investigates the political and philosophical ideas about rulers that existed in fifth-century Athens and explores how Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides used these ideas to present rulers in their plays in a wide variety of different ways. Before that, I was an undergraduate at Pembroke College, Cambridge (2012-2015), and completed an MSt at University College, Oxford (2015-2016).
In the future, I hope to undertake a research project into how the Greeks of the classical period attributed emotions and attitudes to their gods, such as divine anger, envy, pity or friendship.
