Public engagement

I feel very strongly about fair access to higher education, and my career thus far has been characterized by a firm commitment to outreach and widening participation activities. Whilst at St. John's College, I initiated the 'St. John's College Classics Essay Competition', and I have been involved in giving a large number of school talks since being a postgraduate, both to students (of all ages) and to teachers. In April 2016, I was the judge for the Lytham Classical Association's inaugural schools competition.

My research on classical reception in art has led to my working collaboratively with various art galleries, and I am always keen to establish further such links.

In 2015 I was approached to be a talking head on the National Geographic documentary 'Map of Hell', directed by Julian Jones, and (rather glamorously) filmed on location in Naples.
