Chiara Martini

I am a Departmental Lecturer in Ancient Philosophy at the University of Oxford, in association with Somerville College. My main research interest is in ancient philosophy of physics and mathematics.

Before starting this job I did a DPhil (that is, PhD) in Philosophy at the University of Oxford, where I worked under the supervision of Prof Ursula Coope and Dr Michail Peramatzis on a thesis titled 'Fiction and Reality in Aristotle's Philosophy of Geometry'. The thesis investigates the relation between Aristotle's philosophy of geometry and his physics. In particular, I am interested in the relation between physical and geometrical modality, and how geometry applies to the physical world.
