She has published more than twenty books, broadcasts frequently on radio and television, works as consultant with professional theatres, lectures all over the world, and publishes widely in academic and mainstream journals and newspapers. Since arriving at King's she has taught courses on Alexandrian literature, Greek Theatre,  and Aeschylus, and is developing an Introduction to Classical Reception in Sixteen Encounters.
