My research focuses on the interactions between language and gender in Greek tragedy. I am also particularly interested in the ways in which significant or authoritative speech and speech genres are used by characters of tragedies – in particular, speech which makes use of genres or markers of significance from archaic Greek poetry (both lyric and epic).

I have further research interests in Classical Reception, particularly in videogames or in relation to gender, and the history of women's access to the field of Classics.
