I obtained my BA from The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, China, where I majored in translation and minored in philosophy. During the undergraduate years, I realized my real interest was in philosophy. I then moved to the University of Leeds and had my MA in philosophy (2020–2021).
I am currently a year-one PhD student at Leeds. My Primary supervisor is Dr. Juha Saatsi, and my secondary supervisor is Prof. Steven French. My project is central around the concept of causation. I am keen on figuring out how we should understand the nature of causation in light of cutting-edge physics, especially quantum physics. I am also interested in other philosophical debates where causation plays an important role, e.g., mental causation.
My PhD study is supported by the Chinese Scholarship Council (also known as CSC)- University of Leeds joint scholarship. Big thanks to my country and University of Leeds for such generous help.
