Areas of Interest

  • Greek Poetry
  • Early Christian Literature
  • Byzantine Poetry
  • Hymnography
  • Textual Criticism

My research focuses on Greek and Latin literature, especially poetry, from the archaic period to Byzantium. I am particularly interested in the tradition of Greek hymnography, early Christian poetry, and Patristic literature. I am currently working on the classicizing Christian poetry of the fourth and fifth centuries AD, including a commentary on the empress Eudocia's poetic hagiography of Saints Cyprian and Justina.
