I. Academic Biography
I am currently Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, where I was first appointed in the fall of 2016.
Before joining the faculty at CUHK I was a lecturer in philosophy at Clemson University from 2014-2016.
In August 2014, I completed my PhD in philosophy on Hegel's Doctrine of the Concept in his Science of Logic under Distinguished Research Professor Richard Dien Winfield at the University of Georgia. Before taking my PhD in philosophy I completed a Fulbright Research Fellowship on German Idealism at the University of Bonn, in Germany (2013-2014). At the University of Bonn I investigated Schelling's influence on Hegel's Doctrine of the Concept under Markus Gabriel at the Internationales Zentrum für Philosophie NRW (IZPH). Although I have very broad interests, my scholarly work is mainly focused on systematic metaphysical and epistemological questions that stem from the Post-Kantian German philosophical tradition.
