My primary interest centers around Early Chinese Philosophy, and most of my previous and current research are done in this field and in related researches on East Asia (e.g., history of science and technology and contemporary political ideas). Other interests include Ancient Greek Philosophy, Early Modern and Contemporary Ethics and Political Philosophy. I am currently on the editorial board for Chinese Comparative Philosophy for Philosophy Compass.
