Personal profile


I grew up in Hong Kong and moved to the U.K. for university. I studied my BA (Hons), MPhil, and PhD at the University of Cambridge before working as Director of Studies in Philosophy at St Catharine's College, and as a Research Associate at The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion. My research and teaching interests are broadly in philosophical anthropology - all things about the human being. For my PhD, I offered a new reading of Immanuel Kant's Critical work, demonstrating the importance of human embodiment for his metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of science. My current interest is in how making and using technology impacts on our characters, and how in turn our characters might help us to make and use technology well. My approach is centred around joy, exploring how technology can support us as whole persons in community, rejoicing and flourishing together.
