My research focuses on intersections between Latin poetry and Roman society, mostly during the late Republic and early Principate, though reaching as late as the Antonine period. I'm also interested in intertextuality, the history of satire, and ancient concepts of gender and sexuality. Future projects forcus on Catullus, Vergil, Ovid, and Statius. My teaching ranges broadly over classical antiquity. In addition to Latin and Greek, I teach courses on ancient sexuality and gender and on classical literature in translation.
