    Personal Statement

    Before obtaining a PhD in Literary Papyrology at Ca' Foscari University of Venice, I worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Copenhagen (2010). I was then a Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Minnesota (2011-2012) and held a Marie Curie Fellowship at the University of Oxford (2012-2015). I joined Liverpool in 2013 as the J.P. Postgate Fellow and was then a University Teacher (2016-2020) before taking up a Lectureship in Classics.

    I am also an Editor at The Classical Quarterly.

    I would be happy to supervise the work of undergraduate and postgraduate students in the following areas: Greek and Latin literature, ancient and modern textual criticism, papyrology, Graeco-Roman Egypt.
