Personal profile


I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Philosophy at Lingnan University (Hong Kong). My research lies in the fields of philosophy of cognitive science, general philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, and epistemology. I am specifically interested in the study of reasoning and I am currently working on methodological and theoretical issues raised by approaching cognitive science through an adaptationist understanding of evolutionary theory, which includes the problems of generating and testing hypotheses in the field of evolutionary psychology. I also work on the logic of psychological explanations. My supervisor is Prof. Darrell Rowbottom and my co-supervisor is Prof. Jiji Zhang.
