I was born and brought up in Glasgow, but my BA and PhD are both from University College London (UCL); I am also particularly fond of the English Lake District.

Since completing my PhD I have taught at St Andrews, UCL, Edinburgh and Nottingham, and I am very pleased now to have returned to Scotland and to Edinburgh.

When not in my office or the library, I enjoy classical music and looking at wildlife and the company of Figaro, a ginger and white cat.

External appointments

I have been invited to act as referee for a number of distinguished journals in Classics:

  • Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies
  • Classical Quarterly
  • Harvard Studies in Classical Philology
  • Journal of Hellenic Studies, Ramus.
