Research Themes

I teach and research Latin of all periods (Classical, Medieval  and Neo-); my post is jointly shared by Classics, Divinity, English & History.

My prime interests are in historiography, epic poetry and the reception of the Classics (particularly in the Insular-Latin context).

I have edited and translated works by Geoffrey of Monmouth and related texts.

Responsibilities

I conduct a considerable number of university Latin classes, ranging from basic to advanced and covering a wide variety  of authors.

In College, I supervise mainly Latin language and Latin prose composition (the latter also for students from several other colleges).
