Claudia Mirrione (* 1985) was born in Italy, where she graduated in Classics from the University of Palermo (BA December 2007, cum laude). She received a degree of Magister Artium in Classical Studies with a Master’s Thesis on Galen's theory of κρᾶσις under the supervision of Prof. Sabrina Grimaudo (MA March 2011, cum laude). Afterwards she gained a scholarship from the University of Palermo for a post lauream specialization course abroad and spent a semester as visiting student at the University of Hamburg (April-September 2011). From September to December 2011 she worked as external collaborator at the CMG Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften. She is currently research fellow at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, within Philip van der Eijk’s research program “Medicine of the Mind, Philosophy of the Body”.
