Welcome! I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Oregon State University. I received my PhD in Philosophy from Michigan State University in December 2019. I specialize in Feminist Philosophy, Social and Political Philosophy, and Ethics.
My research focuses on addressing the marginalization of underrepresented groups from social philosophy and creating frameworks for a more inclusive theorizing. My dissertation, in particular, examines how to reformulate the concept “women” in order to implement feminist theory in a more intersectional way. In line with this research, I have published multiple articles in peer-reviewed journals, including Social Philosophy Today and The Pluralist, and keep an active conference presentation schedule. I won the Best Paper Prize at the 2016 Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy meeting.
I have been teaching a variety of philosophy and interdisciplinary humanities courses, and received a Teaching Excellence Award in 2019. Most recently, I have designed and launched a new course on ethical and philosophical issues in computer technology. As an underrepresented minority in anglophone philosophy (Asian woman), I am committed to creating more diverse and inclusive learning environments.
