I graduated from Howard University with a BA in Interdisciplinary Humanities and a minor in Latin.  My interests in Classics as an undergraduate started with language, but I developed an interest in portrayals of gender and sexuality in mythology which inspired my undergraduate thesis about Achilles.  I hope to explore this subject more along with reception, which I also have an interest in. I am excited to work with the faculty and peers at UCSB as well as develop skills in research and teaching.
