About this Fellow

I began my career in Cambridge (where I was a research fellow at Jesus College) before moving to St Andrews, where I taught from 1977 to 1991, except for a visiting professorship at University of Minnesota in 1987-8; while there I also taught at Carleton College, Minnesota. I was Professor of Classics at Royal Holloway from 1991, before coming to UCL to take up the Chair of Greek in 2003. My research interests include Greek lyric poetry, tragedy and comedy, oratory, rhetoric and law.
