Dissertation advisors: Klaus Corcilius, Dorothea Frede, and Anthony A. Long

(B.A., Pomona College). Vanessa specializes in Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy, with an emphasis on Hellenistic Philosophy and Plato. Her dissertation in Stoic metaphysics is about how the Stoics countenance immaterial entities within the bounds of their strong physicalist commitments. Her current work on Plato’s epistemology centers around a “more sensible” analysis of knowledge in Republic V.
