Although he originally came to KU to study Computer Science, he has somehow ended up graduating with degrees in Classical Languages and Classical Antiquity with an undergraduate honors thesis entitled “Movement and Stasis in Vergil’s Aeneid.” His central research interests are domestic Roman religion, conceptions of time and eternity in the ancient world, and computational text analysis. He is currently a Graduate Teaching Assistant for Dr. Emma Scioli’s introductory course on Greco-Roman Mythology. In spring 2018, he will be Instructor of Record for LAT 200/201: Vergil’s Aeneid.
