I am Valeriya Chasova, a philosopher of physics.

I have just completed a PhD thesis on the ontology of symmetries in physics at the Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium, under the supervision of Alexandre Guay.

Currently I am studying the relationships between symmetries of actions, equations of motion and conservation laws as arising from Noether’s theorems.

Beforehand I obtained a Master in philosophy of science from the Université Paris-IV – Paris-Sorbonne (now Sorbonne Université) and a Bachelor in classical philology (with distinction) from Saint-Petersburg State University.

I have also studied structural realism, the meaning and reference of theoretical terms, Gettier cases in epistemology and Plato’s metaphysics of numbers.
