I am interested in theories of mind and consciousness preserved in East Asian and Continental philosophical traditions, with particular foci on Chinese Wei Shi (or "consciousness-only) philosophy and Edmund Husserl's phenomenology. I believe these traditions can be brought into fruitful engagement with one another in a global context. Currently, I am working on a project that explores theories of other minds in East Asian Buddhist philosophy.
BA, MA (East China Normal University), Ph.D (McGill University). During my time at McGill University, I taught undergraduate courses related to East Asian intellectual traditions and Buddhist philosophy (2016-2019).
