Research interests

I have particular research interests in ancient narratives and in narrative theories (both ancient and modern).

I have recently completed a monograph for OUP's Classics in Theory series on Narratology and have published two books on Ovid: A Reader’s Guide to Ovid’s Metamorphoses and Ovid's Love Songs. I co-edited Elegy and Narratology: Fragments of Story and my publications include (among others) articles and essays on the classical tradition, chaos theory, and cyborgs.

Research Supervision

I am currently supervising doctoral and masters research projects into time and nostalgia in Ovid, comic-strip narratology, weaving narratives, and the reception of the Greek Anthology. I am always happy to supervise doctoral research projects that relate to Augustan literature and its receptions, as well as those with a narratological focus.


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, 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.
