The Department of Philosophy welcomes Kathrine Brading. 

Katherine comes to us from University of Notre Dame, where she served as Director of the History and Philosophy of Science Program.

She currently holds an ACLS collaborative research fellowship with Marius Stan (Boston College) for their book on 18th century matter theory and mechanics. Additional projects include research on 18th century philosopher Émilie du Châtelet Foundations of Physics; and a monograph re-telling history of philosophy from the late sixteenth century to the present day, with history of physics as an integral part of the story. 

Brading works in history and philosophy of physics, and is best known for her work on symmetries in physics, structural realism, and Newton.
