I come from South Shields, an ex-mining and shipbuilding town in the North East of England that boasts its very own Roman fort. I stayed close to home to study Classics (BA) and Ancient Epic (MA) at Durham University, and was awarded my PhD in Classics in January 2013.

I then spent a year in Heidelberg, Germany, as Alexander von Humboldt Post-Doctoral Fellow, and came to Edinburgh as Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in autumn 2013. I was born a Fraser, my Dad’s family coming from Shetland, and though I’ve left the surname behind I am enjoying rediscovering my Scottish roots.

In September 2018 I will be taking up a Lectureship in Greek at the University of Edinburgh.
