Originally I trained to become a secondary school teacher of Latin and Ancient Greek, before an academic career path opened up. I have always enjoyed teaching and have gathered secondary school teaching experience in Greek and Latin as well as tertiary teaching experience in ancient history, Latin and Greek language and literature, and Digital Humanities.
I am a strong believer in undergradutes contributing to original research and am encouraging this among my own students and as part of international collaborations. I also attempt to increase the employability of both humanities and computer science graduates by teaching them Natural Language Processing methods, such as topic modelling, co-ocurrence analysis, morpho-syntactic normalisation, and word vector analysis, in addition to an understanding of classical text, history, and language. My hope is that the students will find themselves well equipped for our modern world while cherishing their classical roots, education, and values.
