IRIS research profile

Before joining UCL, I studied Classics at Cambridge and Nottingham Universities, and taught at Liverpool University and Trinity College, Dublin.

My research focuses on cultural representation in Classical Greek historiography, examining how ideas about self-presentation and the body are involved in the construction of ethnic and political relations. I am currently working on a monograph on Xenophon, investigating how his scenes of display and spectatorship mediate cultural interaction and political conflict in the context of fourth century Panhellenism.
