She is a narratologist whose research interests focus upon narratives and narrative theories (both ancient and modern) and their impact on futures thinking. She has particular research interests in the stories that programme cultural and sociotechnical narratives about human interactions with new technology.

Research Supervision

I am currently supervising doctoral research projects exploring silence in Ovid, virginity theory, comic-strip narratology, legal narratives and narratology in the Augustan marriage laws, Mary Shelley's 'Promethean' creature, and ancient cryptography. I am always happy to supervise doctoral research projects with a narratological focus, as well as those that relate to Augustan literature and its receptions (especially anything Ovidian).


I teach at all levels and across all of the programmes in Classics and Ancient History, from beginners’ Latin, through first and second year units on Comedy and Epic, to final year options on Time, Temporality and Texts and Configurations of Gender and Sexuality. I was awarded a University Teaching and Learning Award in 2009, and was a BoB (Best of Bristol) Lecturer in 2015. I am also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
