Biography

I work in the area of comparative religious ethics with an emphasis on early Confucian ethics. I am interested in thinking about the relevance of early Confucian conceptions of roles, relationships, and virtues for contemporary moral and political philosophy. My teaching interests include methodological courses on comparative religious ethics, environmental ethics, medical ethics, and thematic courses that engage classic works from both Chinese and Western traditions.
