Bio

I was born and raised in New Jersey and apparently decided I never wanted to leave it: I first earned my BA (magna cum laude) in Classics with a minor in Psychology in 2015 at Rutgers University, and went on to later complete a Post-Baccalaureate program as well as obtain my MA in Classics at the same institution in 2016 and 2017 respectively. I then began the PhD program at Princeton shortly after in the fall of 2017.

My research interests broadly include Greek and Roman literature, with a particular attraction to Greek tragedy, along with Greek and Roman comedy. I am especially interested in the ways that tragedy and comedy, genres that were composed with the intention of appealing to a large and variegated audience, reflect, challenge, and reaffirm the social mores of the time for both the ancient Greeks and the Romans.

While I hope to continue pursuing this interest at Princeton, I also look forward to dipping my feet into the various other areas of ancient literature.
