I am an Assistant Professor of the Department of Religion and Philosophy of the Hong Kong Baptist University. I am also a Research Fellow of the Centre for Applied Ethics of Hong Kong Baptist University. I worked at the University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong before, and was a Junior Research Fellow in the University of Essex. 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 philosophy (in particular Confucianism). My works appeared (and will appear) in American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Applied Philosophy, Journal of Social Philosophy, Journal of Religious Ethics, Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy, 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 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. 

I was invited to be a book reviewer for Routledge and journal reviewer for American Political Science Review, American Journal of Political Science, Political Theory, Philosophical Quarterly (x 2), Journal of Social Philosophy (x 2), Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy, Philosophy Compass (x 3), Journal of Value Inquiry (x 2), Ethical Theory and Moral Practice, Res Publica (x 2), Social Theory and Practice (x 2), Theoria, Journal of East Asian Philosophy, etc.

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.
