Visiting Predoctoral Fellow (Jan 2018-Dec 2018)

PhD, Berliner Zentrum für Wissensgeschichte

Ion Mihailescu studied History of Science at Harvard University, obtaining his PhD in 2018 with a dissertation on the rise and spread of graphical methods in the nineteenth-century physical sciences. His research centers on the development of diagrammatic reasoning and the history of categories as modes of cognition. Ion is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Berlin Center for the History of Knowledge. His current project looks at the use of weather charts in late-eighteeth-century meteorology and their direct connection with the graphical activity of William Playfair and Alexander von Humboldt.
