As an undergraduate, I studied Philosophy at Lingnan University (2012-16) in Hong Kong. I then went to Warwick to undertake an MA in Political and Legal Theory (2016-17) and PhD in Politics and International Studies (2017-present).

I am broadly interested in most topics of political philosophy in the Western and Chinese traditions, although my doctoral research focuses on these areas: (i) democratic theory, (ii) political meritocracy, (iii) political justification and (iv) Rawlsian liberalism. I also keep an eye on contemporary Confucian political philosophy.

I visited Pompeu Fabra University from April to June 2019, under the supervision of Andrew Williams.
