Brief Biography

I have obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Renmin University of China, a Master’s degree in Philosophy from Peking University, and a PhD degree in Philosophy from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I wrote my dissertation on metaethics under the supervision of Peter Railton, while also being influenced by Allan Gibbard and Stephen Darwall. I joined the Department of Philosophy of CUHK in January 2014.

My main areas of interest are moral philosophy, philosophy of mind, political philosophy, and epistemology. I have published on a wide range of philosophical issues, including moral knowledge, mental causation, moral motivation, and distributive justice.

When not doing philosophy, I enjoy reading traditional Chinese literature, watching movies, playing Ping Pong, and shooting billiards.
