BA hons, M.Litt, Ph.D
Teaching Associate


I completed my Ph.D. on Representations of Gender on Athenian Painted Pottery in 2000. I have worked since then in the Shefton Museum of Greek Art and Archaeology undertaking archive work and collections based research with Professor Brian Shefton. I teach in the School of Historical Studies, predominantly for the MA in Greek and Roman Archaeology.


My research interests include the iconography of red-figure and white-ground Athenian painted pottery, women and ritual in Classical Athens, the history of collections and the value of teaching with artefacts.
