Ksenia Romashova

PhD Student


Having finished a BA-equivalent in Religious Studies with a concentration in Theology (Russia), I realized that I wanted to pursue classical languages and ancient philosophy which I studied at Dalhousie University (Halifax, NS). There I developed my primary research interests which include philosophy of mathematics, metaphysics, ancient astronomy, and history of science. In terms of my dissertation area, I intend to continue working on Aristotle’s philosophy of mathematics, specifically on the post-Hellenistic commentaries on and criticisms of Aristotle’s own understanding of the mode of being of mathematical objects. I am also interested in Roman satire and in the photogrammetric 3D analysis of the Mediterranean area. My hobbies include learning about nature and physics, and apart from all that, I love travelling, cherries, escape rooms, and spending time with family and friends.
