Personal profile


I came to the University of Manchester in 2016, after six years in the Department of Greek and Latin at UCL. Before that I was an undergraduate student, post-graduate student, and Junior Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge.

Research interests

My research is mainly in Platonic and Early Greek philosophy, although I have published on Hellenistic and Roman philosophy too. I am particularly interested in Platonic and Presocratic epistemology. I also have an ongoing interest in the interaction of form and content in ancient philosophical writing and in texts considered marginal or inferior. At present, I am completing a monograph on Empedocles' epistemology. I am also working on projects on Parmenides, Heraclitus, and Iris Murdoch's interests in Plato and Homer.

I have supervised PhD theses on topics including Plato's Timaeus, Plato's understanding of 'philosophy', Empedocles, and Plato and rhetoric.
