About me

Five Books Image

I am an Assistant Professor of the Department of Social Science of the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong, and the Associate Programme Director of BSSc in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. I am also a Research Fellow of the Centre for Applied Ethics of Hong Kong Baptist University. I was a Junior Research Fellow in the University of Essex, a Honorary Assistant Professor in the University of Hong Kong and a lecturer in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Under the direction of Prof. Chandran Kukathas and Prof. Paul Kelly, I completed my PhD in Government at London School of Economics and Political Science.

My research interests are in the areas of Anglo-American political philosophy (in particular public justification and liberal neutrality) and comparative political philosophy (in particular Confucianism). My works appeared (and will appear) in Journal of Applied Philosophy, Journal of Social Philosophy, Journal of Religious Ethics, Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy, Philosophia, Philosophical Forum, Social Theory and PracticeRes Publica, Public Reason, Journal of Moral Philosophy and Philosophical Quarterly. I also organized the 1st Oxford Symposium in Comparative Political Philosophy, and was invited to deliver talks in the University of Pittsburgh, the City University of Hong Kong and the Education University of Hong Kong. I write essays in non-academic venues occasionally. 

Besides, I enjoy watching football matches, especially from a tactical perspective. I even wrote a book review for The Mixer of Michael Cox, my favorite football tactical analyst. My beloved team is Manchester United, 2006-2009. I am also a big fan of Game of Thrones.
