My main research interests lie in the application of contemporary sociolinguistics to the ancient world and the integration of linguistics and archaeology to write socio-cultural history. I have published the following books with CUP: Southern Gaul and the Mediterranean: Multilingualism and Multiple Identities in the Iron Age and Roman Periods (2013) and (co-edited with Patrick James) Multilingualism in the Graeco-Roman Worlds (2012). I am currently working on two others: Entangled Worlds: Britain and Gaul in the Late Iron Age and Roman Periods and (with Olivia Elder) The Language of Letters: Bilingual Roman Epistolography from Cicero to Fronto. At Oxford I lectured on Imperial and Late Latin, Roman Britain and Latin Epigraphy for the Classics Faculty. I am co-director of The Canterbury Hinterland archaeological project and director of the Code-switching in Roman Literature network.
