Personal profile

Research interests

Research Interests
My research interests focus on two major areas: the history of Rome in the Republican and Augustan periods, and classical (particularly Roman) historiography. The two are intimately linked: in my book on Sallust I use the historiographical text as a source for intellectual history more broadly, attempting to establish an intellectual context within which to read the historian's work.

My other interests include classical rhetoric, Cicero, and cultural memory; my next project will be on the early (fragmentary) historians of the Roman Republican period, and the ways in which they deal with the emergent phenomenon of imperial power.

I completed my PhD at UCL in 2015, and joined the University of Bristol immediately thereafter.

Contact Information
My office is 1.34b, 11 Woodland Road.
My consultation hours for Autumn 2022 are TBD.


Research Supervision
I would welcome students for research supervision in topics around Roman history (especially of the Republican period) and Latin prose (particularly historiography and adjacent genres). Please feel free to email me to discuss your ideas.

In 2022-3 I am unit director for the following units:

Peoples and Places: Knowing the Ancient World
Ancient Historical Writers
Latin C2/D2 (Juvenal & Pliny)
Approaches to Greek History
