After completing my undergraduate studies at Clare College, Cambridge, I received my PhD from University College London in 2016, after which I joined the department at Nottingham as a Teaching Associate. My research focuses on Old Comedy, and in particular on the relationship between plot and genre in the plays of Aristophanes. I've also published work on gender differentiation in comic language.
