After a course of undergraduate studies in St Petersburg, Russia, where my specialization initially was in Russian language and literature, and later in Classical philology, I conducted graduate studies at Stanford University (1993-2000), focusing my research on ancient Greek religion and Greek social history and receiving a PhD in Classics in 2001. Subsequently (2000-2007), I taught ancient Greek and Roman history, as well as Ancient Greek and Latin, at Bowdoin College, USA, and joined King's in 2007.

Research interests and PhD supervision

  • Ancient Greek religion (methods and approaches )
  • Aigina and the Saronic Gulf (history, epigraphy, archaeology)
  • Identity formation (ancient to modern Greece)
  • Greek epigraphy (Aigina, Attica, Northern Black Sea)
  • Digital epigraphy

Current projects

I am happy to supervise PhD students on topics in ancient Greek religious, political and social history, primarily of the Archaic and Classical periods.
