Fields of interest

  • Chinese Wei Shi (or "consciousness-only") philosophy
  • East Asian Buddhist Philosophy
  • Feminist Philosophy in East Asia
  • Buddhist modernism
  • Phenomenology
  • German Idealism
  • Neo-Confucianism and its modernization


I work on theories of mind and consciousness preserved in East Asian and Continental philosophical traditions. I believe these traditions can be brought into fruitful engagement in a global context, which allows for the possibility of reimagining lived experience at the personal, interpersonal, and social levels. 
My current project "A Lost Pearl: Feminist Theories in Buddhist Philosophy of Consciousness" intends to develop a Yogācāra version of Buddhist feminism that expands the horizons of both Buddhist philosophy and feminist thought. I am particularly interested in interdisciplinary discussions that rediscover marginalised voices of women and overlooked materials on gender/sex in the East Asian context.
