I’m a third-year PhD student from New Zealand. I studied Greek and Maths at the University of Auckland, where I wrote on the relationship between Apollo and Zeus in Greek tragedy by examining the intersection of their spheres of interest, namely prophecies and δικη. I also wrote on the narrative structure of battle type scenes in the Iliad. Recent projects of mine include the uses of music in Alcestis and colour in lyric poetry.
While my research focuses on early Greek poetry, I am interested in ancient languages more generally and have dipped my toes into Middle Egyptian Hieroglyphs and Old Norse, as well as groups for spoken Greek and Latin.
