Tel: 0116 252 2172
I completed my undergraduate and Masters degrees in Canada (BA Honours – Memorial University of Newfoundland; MA – University of British Columbia) before receiving a PhD in Ancient History and Archaeology from the University of Leicester. Prior to joining the school in October 2008 I held positions at University College London and the University of Birmingham. I am the field director of the Sikyon Survey Project, and have been involved in archaeological projects in Greece, Syria and North America. My research straddles the line between Ancient History and Archaeology, interweaving texts and objects to examine the landscapes of the Eastern Mediterranean.
I am heavily involved in teaching in the department, and have contributed to the following modules:
AH1008 (Language Tools for Ancient History: Greek)
AH1009 (Language Tools for Ancient History: Latin)
AH1010 (Introduction to Greek History)
AH1011 (Introduction to Roman History)
AH2012 (Sources and Methods for Ancient History
AH2022 (Classical and Hellenistic Greek States)
AH2026 (Alternatives to Athens)
AR2035 (The Mediterranean in the Ancient World)
AH3015 (Sparta and the Greek World)
AH3061 (Ten Things: Text, Object and Historiography)
AR3061 (Roman Urbanism)
