Personal profile


I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Ancient History. My current research focuses on the characterisation of animal sounds in Latin literature from 100BC to 200AD. 

My undergraduate studies in music and ancient history led me to specialise in the musical cultures of ancient Rome, and in 2014 I was awarded a Master of Research with a thesis on the sociocultural perception of Roman brass instruments. My research interests include musical cultures, social history, sound studies, human-animal interactions and sensory studies in antiquity.
