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.

Before coming to Oxford, I studied philosophy at McGill in Montreal.

I was born and raised in Hong Kong, which was a British colony until 1997, but has since been returned to China.

In June 2014, James Openshaw and I are organizing a CRNAP Philosophy of Language Workshop at Oxford. In July 2014, I'll be at the Proof, Truth, and Computation summer school in Chiemsee, Germany.
