Educational Background

I received my B.A. in Philosophy from the University of California, Berkeley and my M.A. and Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

I studied history of philosophy while at Berkeley, especially Ancient Greek philosophy, and ethical theory. At Michigan I further pursued study of ethical theory and specialized in early Chinese philosophy, especially the ethical views of the early Confucian, Mencius.

I wrote my dissertation on ethical theory and moral psychology in the thought of the early Confucian, Mencius.

I have formal training in Ancient Greek, Latin, and Classical Chinese; I speak some Mandarin and Korean, as well.

[Note: From Fall 2011 and until Fall 2014, I will be on a reduced teaching schedule while serving as Associate Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences.]
