I’m a graduate student in philosophy at the University of Arizona. Before that, I studied at The Ohio State University.

My philosophical interests are very broad. When forced, I will usually explain to people that I'm most interested in some combination of value theory, metaphysics and logic/semantics. However vague and uninformative it is, people seem to find that explanation satisfying for some reason. Then, so be it?

A Note on My Name

While I was previously known as “Zhiyuan Li” (which remains my legal name), I would appreciate being known professionally as “Ding” due to family-related reasons. “Ding” can function as both a first name and a last name.

Pronouns: they/them.
