About me

Salvete omnes! I am a third year student studying Classical Studies and Latin, with a particular interest in ancient political and ethical philosophy.

After the widespread ennui of last year, my main ambition is to inject some much needed enjoyment back into student life in the school. Hopefully this year the School of Classics will be brimming with fun (in-person) events and opportunities such as guest speakers, pub quizzes and 'symposiums'. In my time at St Andrews, I have had the fortune to study modules in a variety of other schools, including Divinity, Philosophy and Art History. Consequently I am also eager to promote greater academic and social collaboration between the humanities.

As School President for 2021-2022, I represent all Classics students on various committees such as EduCom, the Classics Teaching Committee, and the Classics Student Staff Consultative Committee. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any complaints, questions, are looking to pitch in, or have ideas for projects!
