I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Jean Nicod Institute (CNRS-ENS-EHESS, team: Consciousness and the Self, dir. Uriah Kriegel) and a guest scholar at the Institute of Philosophy at Freie Universität Berlin. The topic of my research project is the phenomenology of intersubjectivity, in which I attempt to understand the concept of intersubjectivity from a new perspective by introducing and analyzing the linguistic practices of the concept of intersubjectivity in non-European languages such as Korean and Malagasy. This project will be published as a book by Lexington Books in 2019.

I received my PhD in philosophy at Freie Universität Berlin. My dissertation was published by Duncker und Humblot Berlin under the title of “Sorge und Geschichte: Phänomenologische Untersuchung im Anschluss an Heidegger,” in which I analyze the concepts of Zeitlichkeit and Geschichtlichkeit based on Heidegger’s “Sein und Zeit” in relation to Geschichte and Erzählung.
