I am a UVM alumna (MA in Greek and Latin, 2000) who returned to Vermont in 2006 after finishing my PhD at Princeton with a dissertation on Ovid. I teach courses in all levels of Greek and Latin language and literature; recent and forthcoming courses include Classical Mythology, Shakespeare and the Classical Tradition, Intermediate Latin, Elementary Greek, and Roman Lyric Poetry. My academic interests include the literature and history of the late Republican and Augustan periods, Roman epic, Greek and Roman theater, Roman topography with emphasis on literary and historical context, and the classical tradition. Aside from classics, my interests include science fiction, Shakespeare, cooking, and movies and pop culture.
