Following a degree in Ancient Cultures at the Free University in Amsterdam, I completed an MSt and a DPhil in Ancient History at the University of Oxford, undertaking part of my research in Greece and Italy as member of the British Schools at Athens and Rome. I then worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow for the Copenhagen Associations Project in Denmark (2011-2014). Returning to the UK, I taught a range of ancient history topics as Lecturer at Somerville College and Worcester College in Oxford (2015), before joining the History Department of the University of Southampton in January 2016.

Research interests

I am an ancient historian with a particular interest in the Greek world, Hellenistic history, and religion, as well as Greek history during the Roman period.

My forthcoming book on Greek Sanctuaries and the Rise of Rome explores the spread of Roman power as seen from religious sites in Greece, the Aegean, and Asia Minor (from the third until the early first century BCE). It brings out the key role of cults and sanctuaries in early exchanges between Greeks, Romans, and Hellenistic rulers – in war, diplomacy, and trade.

As part of my work for the Copenhagen Associations Project, I undertook research on ancient Greek associations, carrying out surveys and detailed studies of epigraphic evidence (esp. from the Aegean), and analysing religious aspects, foreign involvement, and relations with Rome.

My ongoing research interests include the local histories and wider connections of islands in the Aegean from the fifth century BCE, through the Hellenistic age, into the Roman Imperial period; Greek sanctuaries and their networks; and travel and mobility in the ancient world.

My teaching includes a Year 1 module on Alexander the Great and his Legacy and Year 2 modules on Ancient Greeks at War and Cleopatra's Egypt. I contribute to the Year 1 modules World Histories, Introduction to the Ancient World and Ancient History: Sources and Controversies, as well as to the Year 2 Group Project and the Year 3 Dissertation. I am developing a new Year 3 special subject on Islands and Empires in the Ancient Aegean. If you are interested in any of these topics, or in the history of the ancient Greek and Hellenistic world more broadly, feel free to get in touch.
