About

Andy Yu

I'm a graduate student in philosophy at Oxford.

My interests are in philosophical logic and the philosophy of language, as well as metaphysics and epistemology.

In 2014–2015, I was a visiting student in philosophy at NYU.

Before coming to Oxford, I studied philosophy at McGill.

I was born and raised in Hong Kong.
