簡歷

I was majoring in physics at Princeton University when I took Thomas Nagel’s course, Philosophy 101, by accident. At the end of the semester I switched my major to philosophy. My two Junior Papers and my Senior Thesis were written under the supervision of Nancy Cartwright, Thomas Nagel, and Thomas Scanlon respectively. I was accepted into Oxford’s B.Phil. program in philosophy. Upon arrival in Oxford, I told Professor H. L. A. Hart of my interests in Philosophy of Law. Having accepted his advice, I switched into Oxford’s program in jurisprudence (a legal program) before the Term started. I took legal and philosophical subjects. In philosophy, I was tutored by John Mackie, John McDowell, Jonathan Glover, and John Finnis. I received my Ph.D. in philosophy at Cornell University, where I was supervised by Allen Wood.

I returned back to Hong Kong to practice law as a junior barrister. Three years later, I taught philosophy at the Colorado College. Subsequently, I returned to Hong Kong to teach at Lingnan College briefly, before taking up my post at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

I have been an academic visitor at All Souls College, Oxford, a Visiting Scholar at Cornell Univeristy, a Visiting Fellow at Robinson College, Cambridge, and as a Fulbright Visiting Senior Scholar at Harvard University.

I am currently working on a book in Practical Ethics.
