Rosa holds BA degrees from Wellesley (2003) and King's College, Cambridge (2005), as well as an MA (2008) and PhD (2011) from Princeton. Prior to joining King's in September 2016, she was the first A. G. Leventis Research Fellow in Ancient Greek Literature in the Department of Greek & Latin at UCL (2012-2016).

Her research focuses on two distinct but complementary areas: ancient Greek tragedy (especially the tragic chorus) and Hellenic classicisms in the Americas. Her research has benefited from the generous support of the A. G. Leventis Foundation, the British Academy, the Harvard Center for Hellenic Studies, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. Currently, she is one of the co-investigators of the ‘Improntas de danza antigua: textos, cuerpos, imágenes, movimiento’ (IDA) research project funded by the Fundación BBVA in Spain, led by Zoa Alonso Fernández (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid). 

Rosa is co-editor of two volumes which address her two main research areas: Paths of Song: The Lyric Dimension of Greek Tragedy (De Gruyter 2018) and Greeks and Romans on the Latin American Stage (Bloomsbury 2020), and is currently completing two monographs in these areas. She also edited the first ever critical edition of Luis Alfaro's 'Greek' plays: The Greek Trilogy of Luis Alfaro: Electricidad, Oedipus El Rey, Mojada (forthcoming September 2020, Methuen Drama/Bloomsbury).

Rosa is Associate Editor for Greek Literature at the American Journal of Philology. She also sits on the editorial board of two Brazilian Classics journals: Nuntius Antiquus and PhaoS - Revista de Estudos Clássicos. With Justine McConnell she co-edits the new Classics and the Postcolonial book series for Routledge. 

In 2019 Rosa was elected to the Council of the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies. Previously she was a member of the Postclassicisms Network (2013-2020). She also served on the Steering Committee of the Women's Classical Committee UK from its establishment in 2015 until 2019.
