Past projects have involved memory and being in Hesiod's Theogony and agonistic performance in the Homeric Hymn to Apollo. Current projects include memory and metrics in the Odyssey and genre and performance in the Iliad. He is also currently serving as secretary for S.C.I.T. (Stanford Classics in Theater).
