I am Valeriya Chasova, and I do philosophy and history of physics.

Recently I have completed a PhD thesis on the ontology of theoretical symmetries in physics, more precisely their direct empirical status, at the Université catholique de Louvain under the supervision of Alexandre Guay.

I am currently studying at the University of Strasbourg the history of the indirect empirical status of theoretical symmetries, namely the relationships between symmetries of actions, equations of motion and conservation laws.

Beforehand I obtained a Master in philosophy of science from the University Paris-IV – Paris-Sorbonne (now Sorbonne University) 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.
