Since October 2019, I have been a Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter at the University of Duisburg-Essen and a member of the Philosophical Anthropology and Ethics Research Group. Before coming to Essen, I held lecturer positions at Seoul National University and Underwood International College in South Korea. I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Southern California, under the supervision of Stephen Finlay (chair), Mark Schroeder, and Ralph Wedgwood, arguing that coherence requirements of rationality are in fact descriptive principles about belief and intention. I work at the intersection of ethics and epistemology, focusing particularly on the nature of reasons, rationality, and reasoning in epistemic and practical domains. I also have serious interest in philosophy of mind, especially in the nature of belief and intention.
