His research focuses on late Classical and early Hellenistic Greek literature. In particular, he is interested in the way that poets in these periods engage with the broader literary tradition as a way of creating meaning. He is currently collaborating with his colleague Charles McNelis on a book on Lycophron, the author of the difficult poem called the Alexandra, and is also writing a commentary on select Hellenistic epigrams.
