I received a Wingate Scholarship for the academic year 2003-4. I was at that time in the final year of studies for my DPhil in Classics at Merton College, Oxford. I had previously completed my undergraduate degree in Classics, with first class honours, at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. The Wingate Scholarship allowed me to complete my DPhil, a critical text of the Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, with introduction and commentary on the first 200 lines of the poem. I submitted my DPhil in August, 2004 and graduated in March, 2005. I am now an Assistant Professor at the University of Waterloo in Canada. A substantially revised and expanded version of my DPhil thesis was published in 2008 by Oxford University Press UK in the Oxford Classical Monographs series.
