John Zhicheng Fan '19
NYU--PhD student in philosophy
After Swarthmore, I did a master's degree in philosophy at Oxford. I am currently a PhD student in philosophy at NYU. I work on meta-ethics, normative ethics, and political philosophy. While I don't do much math now (apart from occasionally doing competition problems and watching math videos on youtube), my math degree trained me to think rigorously about problems, and this is an essential skill for philosophy as well.
