Claire is from Southern California and graduated from Thomas Aquinas College in 2020 with a B.A. in Liberal Arts. There she received a strong foundation in both the progression of Western philosophical thought and the history of math and science. In her graduate work, she seeks to re-examine medieval natural philosophy and metaphysics in the Aristotelian-Thomistic tradition, and see what light those principles can shed upon a more contemporary understanding of physical concepts such as space, time, and measurement.
