I completed my BA at the University of Rochester in history and classics in 2020. There, I wrote my senior honors thesis on the reception of the Areopagus Council in Greek and Latin literature within the 5th to 4th centuries BCE and the 1st and 2nd centuries CE. My interests range between Athenian democracy, western medieval and middle-late Byzantine literature, and the late antique Roman Empire. I am generally interested in literary culture and change, imperial ideology, and the Roman/Byzantine reception of other cultures.
