Research interests

My research focuses on Ovid's portrayal of virginal women. I am particularly interested in the way that Ovid uses virginity to complicate traditional approaches to gender. I am also keen to explore the connections that Ovid makes between virginal females and the contemporary climate of 'moral reform'. 


Academic Background

At the University of Oxford, I completed a Bachelor's degree in Ancient and Modern History. After graduating, I participated in an outreach programme on behalf of Magdalen College. This involved delivering talks in two South Yorkshire schools, encouraging pupils from a diverse range of backgrounds to apply to Magdalen. It was an immense privilege to be involved in this, as I have a particular passion for diversifying higher education. I then completed a Masters degree, in Medieval Studies, at the University of Leeds. During my time at Leeds, I continued my passion for outreach by participating in a Museum Day at Leeds City Museum. In 2017, I also delivered a paper on third-gender theory at the War and Peace Conference. 

In addition to academic outreach, I have also been involved in a wide range of editorial projects, most recently as the Editor in Chief of the Postgraduate Journal of Medical Humanities 2022.
