My first degree was in Classics (Oxford 1984) and my DPhil (Oxford 1990) examined religion in the Greek historian Herodotus. I have been teaching at King's since 1989.

Research interests and PhD supervision

  • Ancient Greek religion
  • Alexander the Great
  • Ancient Greek history more generally

I have supervised PhDs on a wide range of topics, in particular involving aspects of Greek religion. These have covered history from the Archaic Period to the Hellenistic. My publications have also ranged across this area.


I teach a wide range of ancient (mainly Greek) history, including ancient religion.

Expertise and public engagement

I was involved in the redisplay of the London Mithraeum beneath the Bloomberg building.
