Since leaving Ertegun House, I have been pursuing a PhD in Classics at Princeton University. I have published several articles, including a version of my M.St. dissertation. Currently, I am writing my doctoral dissertation, entitled "The Environmental Poetry of Augustan Rome." The dissertation grows out of a wider interest in literature and the environment, an area of research I first got to explore in depth during my time in Oxford. I feel fortunate to have been part of the Ertegun community, and would be happy to hear from past, present, and prospective Ertegun scholars.
