My research is primarily focused on the political and economic history of the Greek world, from the archaic period through to the Hellenistic. I am particularly (but by no means exclusively) interested in numismatic and epigraphic evidence. As part of the CHANGE project, I will be looking at the complex interplay between civic and imperial monetary economies in ancient Anatolia, from the Lydian kingdom in the seventh century BC through to the arrival of Rome.
My research for CHANGE builds on my doctoral work, which I carried out at New College, Oxford (2016-2019). My thesis, entitled ‘Athenian Power in the Fifth Century BC’, offers a new analysis of the Athenian Empire. It establishes that Athenian power was a matter of negotiation, with scope for significant allied agency, and analyses how the empire adapted to different regional contexts. I am in the process of completing a monograph based on the thesis, along with a number of shorter publications.
Before joining the CHANGE project, I was stipendiary lecturer at Corpus Christi College, Oxford (2020) and lecturer in the Classics Faculty, University of Cambridge (2020-2021). I’ve lectured on fifth-century Greek history and Thucydides, and have taught classes and tutorials on a wide range of topics in Greek and Roman history.
