PhD Candidate, Language and Literature
B.A., Columbia University, 2020

I am a PhD candidate in the Languages and Literature track of Stanford's Classics Department. In 2020, I earned my B.A. in Classics from Columbia University, where I had begun my research on distinction and depiction of the "Other" within Aeschylean tragedy. Currently, I am expanding my research to examine the mythological narratives and archetypes upon which these portrayals are constructed, with a focus on social and state origin myths.
