About Me

I’m an Associate Professor of Classics at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick, Canada. By vocation I’m a digital classicist with interests in Ancient Latin and Greek poetry, computational stylometry, cognitive science, and oral-formulaic theory. I use Digital Humanities methods to study the ways in which literary texts and their audiences respond to one another through patterns of sound, meter, and vocabulary.

I have a PhD in Classics from the University at Buffalo, where I wrote my dissertation on Homeric poetics. Before coming to Mount Allison I held post-doc positions in Computer Science at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana, and in Classics at the University of Geneva, Switzerland.
