I earned my B.A. in Classics from Case Western Reserve University in 2013 and M.A. in Classics from UIUC in 2015. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Classical Philology. My research interests include Latin imperial epic, nature and the environment, natural history and philosophy, and ecocriticism. I am writing my dissertation on the role of nonhuman nature in Flavian epic.
