My research is primarily situated in Roman history and Latin literature, but interweaves critical military studies and Continental philosophy, particularly the work of Gilles Deleuze. I specialise in experimentation with different methodological approaches to the military and violence in texts, focusing on the portrayal of the Roman soldier in ancient literature and modern receptions. I completed my PhD at Bristol in 2017, with a thesis which read the bodies and behaviour of the military in Lucan's epic, Civil Warin light of the philosophical theory of ‘multiplicity’. I joined Liberal Arts at Bristol in 2017, as a Senior Teaching Associate, and now teach Roman history in the Department of Classics and Ancient History, where I am also the Deputy Director of Teaching.

I am currently preparing my thesis for publication as a monograph, entitled Arms and the Many, and using its central conceit in the form of an article and as a chapter for a collected volume, both due for publication in 2019-20. I also run an outreach workshop series in secondary schools, Experiencing War in the Roman World (funded by Classics for All), which aims to get pupils thinking differently about ancient warfare, and to introduce Classics to new audiences.

Research interests: Roman military history, Latin literature, critical military studies, Continental philosophy.
