IRIS research profile

I am part of the Liverpool diaspora. I began my career in Cambridge (where I was a research fellow at Jesus College) before moving to St Andrews, where I taught from 1977 to 1991, except for a visiting professorship at University of Minnesota in 1987-8; while there I also taught at Carleton College, Minnesota. I was Professor of Classics at Royal Holloway from 1991, before coming to UCL to take up the Chair of Greek in 2003. I love the smell and feel and noise of London and the constant vibrancy and energy at UCL. A brief CV can be found here.

My PhD was on Pindar and was supervised by Pat Easterling, John Killen and the late Sir Denys Page. I return constantly to my first love, Greek lyric poetry, though over the years I've also published on tragedy, comedy, Homer and especially oratory and law. I am under contract to produce a Cambridge ‘green and yellow’ commentary on book 7 of Herodotos.
