Ph.D. Candidate
B.A. Classics, Stanford (2013)
M.A. Classical Languages, University of Georgia (2016)

I hold a B.A. in Classics from Stanford and an M.A. in Classical Languages from the University of Georgia. My dissertation studies the relationship between the social organization of work and the structure of political institutions in Classical and Hellenistic Greek city-states. For part of this project I use natural language processing and statistical learning to facilitate the interpretation of large amounts of text (literary, inscriptions, papyri), and to this end I am also pursuing an M.S. in Computer Science. Within Classics my primary interests are in Greek political and economic history, ancient political philosophy, Homeric poetry, and Greek and Latin linguistics. In general I am interested in the history and sociology of work.
