I love education. I love Classics. Those two things are inseparable for me. My research focuses on Ancient History and Historiography, but I love teaching all areas of Classics: language, literature, philosophy, and more. Classics can inspire a love for learning in anyone, and one of my aims is to bring it to a wider audience and show what an enriching and illuminating experience it can be.

I have long believed that education opens up a world of opportunities, drawing out the potential of young people, increasing their confidence, and encouraging them to see new horizons available to them. Education essentially unlocks their freedom to be themselves. Why do I believe my subject Classics can help students achieve this? Classics promotes and helps the development of a variety of skills, from logical thinking and attention to detail through the languages, critical thinking in the study of texts from poets to historians and philosophers. Beyond that, Classics asks questions about the bigger issues of life.
