Doctoral Candidate - Doctor of Philosophy


Kia ora!  I am Zhu Rui, a PhD student coming from China. Just call me "Ray" for it shares the same pronunciation with my given name. I got my bachelor degree of philosophy in Northwest University (Xi'an, China) . After graduation I became a comedian actor in online sitcom, you can watch my works here:

But I prefer to be a scholar, thus started my postgraduate life focusing on logic in Chinese Academy of Social Science (CASS)  in 2011. After graduation in 2014, I choose to study oversea for a higher degree.

Now I study logic in the ARTS of the UoA. As a logic student, my interests ranges quite widely from humanities to science, I love to read or discuss about philosophy, history, math, movie, soccer, computer game and popular science and I devote myself to extend my logic studies to such area.
