My research focuses on Greek literature and mythology. In particular, I am interested in narratives about the creation and development of the universe, and in ideas around bodily abnormality in antiquity. My current research project explores cross-cultural links between ancient Greek cosmogonic narratives and those that appear in ancient Indian texts. My doctoral research, ‘Monsters in Ancient Greek Cosmogony, Ethnography and Biology’, explored the roles of monstrous creatures in different genres of ancient Greek literature. I am currently working on converting my thesis into a monograph.
