I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at North Carolina State University. Recently, I was a Research Associate on the ERC project "Truth and Semantics" at the University of Bristol. I earned my PhD in philosophy from MIT. Before that, I studied as an undergraduate at the University of Notre Dame, double majoring in philosophy and mathematics.
I work primarily on philosophical logic, mathematical logic, metaphysics, and the philosophy of language. I'm especially interested in Boolean-valued models, vagueness and indeterminacy, semantic paradoxes, set theory, formal theories of truth, and truthmaker semantics. More details about my research can be found here.
Here's my CV.
My first name is pronounced (roughly) in IPA /ʃɪnhə/. I am from the Hui ethnic minority group in China. I grew up in the city of Nanjing. When I am not doing philosophy, I like solving number puzzles like Sudoku and playing video games.
