Title: 
Dr.
Position: 
Research fellow

 

I have worked imprimis on the intellectual history of early modern England​, but a large range of interests in the interaction between philology and philosophy, in Greek, Latin and more recently Arabic interest me, above all with respect to Aristotelian material. I am currently involved, however, with a book on the reception of Horace in early modern France.
