ABOUT ME

II am a visiting post-doctoral fellow at Linacre College (Oxford) and a fellow at Harvard Center for Hellenic Studies with an interest in gaining a deeper insight into the reconstruction of what ancient Greek religion and mythological narratives of the archaic and classical ages (8th–5th cent. B.C.) inherited from the IE tradition from which they descended. My previous research focused on word-level and thematic IE inheritance in the language of two Gk. choral lyric poets, Pindar and Bacchylides (5th cent. B.C.), taking cognate Indic (Sanskrit) and Iranian (Avestan) texts as the main comparanda.
