I have been a student in the  Department of the Classics at UIUC since 2011. In spring 2013 I earned a  Master's degree under the supervision of Professor Traill (thesis title:  "Aristophanic Oracles"). My main interests include Old Comedy and  Ancient Philosophy. I have taught Greek, Latin, Myth, Modern Greek, and have served as the editorial assistant for the Classical Journal. I am currently working on my dissertation, Explorations in Platonic Psychology: Phaedo, Republic, Timaeus, under the direction of Prof. Kirk Sanders.
