My research focuses on Hellenistic Greek and Roman poetry. I am particularly interested in applying modern theories of intertextuality and metapoetics to understand important dynamics of classical poetry.

My book Echoing Hylas: A Study in Hellenistic and Roman Metapoetics, was published in 2015 by University of Wisconsin Press.  

I have recently finished a VENI research project funded by NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) on "The Poetics of Valerius Flaccus' Argonautica". As part of this project, Brill's Companion to Valerius Flaccus, edited by Gesine Manuwald (UCL) and me, was published in 2014 by Brill.

I am currently revising the Loeb Classical Library edition of Valerius Flaccus by J.H. Mozley (1934) for Harvard University Press.
