My interest in the ancient world developed at a young age; I found mythology captivating, and enjoyed exploring the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. I then earned a BA in Classical Archaeology & Ancient History, History, and Politics at Brandeis University in Waltham Massachusetts before completing an MA in Ancient History and a PhD in Classics at King’s College London. Before joining the School of Classics at University College Dublin in August 2018 I held posts in Birmingham, Durham, Exeter, and London.
