I am a Research Fellow working on the popular reception of Aristotle’s natural science, especially zoology and gynaecology, on the Leverhulme-funded 'Aristotle Beyond the Academy' research project. Previously, I have held a postdoctoral position at the Centre for Hellenic Studies, King’s College London, and taught at both KCL and Goldsmiths. I have also taught at Notting Hill and Ealing High School. I sit on the Classical Association’s Teaching Board as a HE Rep, and since 2017 have worked with the Advocating Classics Education project to expand access to classical education in schools.
