I am professor of Classical Studies at Dickinson College. My main DH interests are in the multimedia annotation of classical texts, lexicon digitization, and the statistical study of vocabulary. My teaching focuses on Latin literature, and my scholarly work includes translations, articles on Latin literature, and a monograph on Parthenius of Nicaea.
