My research interests are primarily focused on the academic history and the history of science within Ancient Greece, through the Classical and Hellenistic periods. I am particularly interested in themes and questions related to the intersection of philosophy, science, and the social world, as a means to understand the social pressures that informed knowledge production both in science and other academia. I am also interested in the daily processes of early academic institutions, which largely remain unknown and which information about can further clarify understanding of early knowledge production; thereby improving the understanding of early academic practices and trends in ancient knowledge.
