  I am Ru Ye. I joined School of Philosophy of Wuhan University as an Associate Researcher in 2016, after getting my PhD from Cornell University. I work mainly on epistemology, more specifically, epistemic permissivism, higher-order evidence, and pragmatic encroachment. I am also interested in formal epistemology, metanormativity, and the intersection between ethics and epistemology.
