Francesca Bellazzi is a PhD student in the ERC MetaScience Project: the Metaphysical Unity of Science (n. 771509). She holds a BA in Philosophy from Università Cattolica of Milan (2017) and an MSc in Philosophy of Science from the LSE (2018).
Francesca is specialising in metaphysics, philosophy of science and philosophy of biology. She is currently investigating natural kinds at different levels in biology, in particular in genetics and cell biology. Her interests also involve Ancient and Medieval Philosophy, especially Aristotle and the Medieval problem of universals.
Francesca's research involves studying classical metaphysical categories, such as kinds, and laws in contemporary sciences, as reflected in her BA and MSc dissertations. The former regards a dispositional account of laws of nature and its application to biological laws (supervisors Prof. Giordani and Dr. De Florio). The latter is a proposal of Aristotelian essentialism in the definition of biological species (supervisor Dr. Birch).
