I’m a classical philologist interested in ancient agriculture, sensory studies, and ancient magic, religion, and ritual; much of my work is at the intersection of these areas. My forthcoming book, The Scent of Ancient Magic, deals with intersections of scent and ritual in the ancient Mediterranean. My next book project will examine ancient farming and how Romans used agriculture as part of their public image.
