Educational Background

  • Brown University (PhD, 2007)
  • University of Arizona (MA, 2000)

My primary research interests revolve around the works of Seneca, an important philosopher, tragedian, and politician of the 1st C. CE.  Here at Oberlin I teach a variety of language courses (Latin and Greek), Roman history, as well as special topics courses in Latin literature.
