I am a linguist by training, a classicist by profession, and a comparative philologist at heart. The recipient of degrees in linguistics from Yale, Oxford, and Harvard, I had the good fortune to be able to reinvent myself as a classicist at Princeton, where I have been teaching since the spring of 1998.  I am an experienced Faculty Adviser and look forward enormously to helping you make the very best of your undergraduate years—and maybe to teaching you in some of my classes, which range from intensive beginning Greek to the history of English via the freshman seminar “Wordplay: A Wry Plod from Babel to Scrabble."
