My research focuses on intersections between literature and society in the Greco-Roman world with particular emphasis on Latin poetry. I'm also interested in intertextuality, the history of satire and other poetic genres, the reception of classical mythology, and ancient concepts of gender and sexuality. Future major projects include articles on Ovid as well as book-length studies of Catullus and Vergil. 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.
