Biography

I'm originally from Indianapolis, and grew up there and abroad. I majored in Greek at Yale, and then went on to do doctoral work in Classics at Cornell. After finishing my PhD, I spent a year in Munich as a post-doctoral fellow at the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae. I taught for two years at the University of Illinois before moving to UVA, where I've taught since 1999. For more information, please visit my home page.
