Hello! I'm Haixin (pronounced hi-SIN).
I am currently an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Nebraska Omaha.
My research is primarily on social epistemology and philosophy of science. I have additional research interests in ethics and social ontology. I received my PhD in History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh in 2019. I completed my BA at Cornell University. From 2019 to 2021, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Leeds, working with Robbie Williams on an ERC funded project, Group Thinking.
Since 2022, I am a member of the History Philosophy Culture working group of the Next Generation Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration.
