Ox Me

I’m a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Bioethics in the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Beginning in Spring 2021, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ethics Education  at Seoul National University.

I’ve received a PhD in the Philosophy Department at Duke University, where I served as the Assistant Director of the Center for Comparative Philosophy (CCP). I also have philosophy degrees from Oxford University (BPhil; 2-year master’s) and Yonsei University (BA and MA).

I work primarily in ethics, applied ethics (esp. bioethics), and social and political philosophy. I also have considerable research interest and teaching competency in the history of ethics and Chinese and comparative philosophy. My philosophical journey has been an endeavor to harmonize virtue and happiness in a good human life with a focus on the interpersonal and social aspects.

My works have been published in Philosophical Studies, Australasian Journal of Philosophy, and American Philosophical Quarterly. And I have been awarded the Mark S. Ehrenreich Prize in Healthcare Ethics Research for the best paper (Asia) from 2020 World Congress of Bioethics
