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.
