Professor of History and Philosophy of Science
I am a Professor of History and Philosophy of Science at Underwood International College, Yonsei University, where I have dedicated myself to teaching and research since 2006. Before joining Yonsei, I completed my PhD at Trinity College, University of Cambridge, specializing in the interdisciplinary field of History and Philosophy of Science (HPS). My academic journey began with an initial degree in mathematics, followed by Master’s degrees in HPS, mathematical biology, and cognitive science.
My current research primarily focuses on the philosophy of psychoanalysis, with a growing interest in neuropsychoanalysis. I explore the philosophical implications of Freud’s theories and assess the scientific status of psychoanalysis, aiming to deepen our understanding of the mind and its workings. My book, Freud’s Theory of Dreams: A Philosophico-Scientific Perspective, published by Rowman & Littlefield, reflects my ongoing commitment to this area of study.
Additionally, I actively contribute to academic discourse through publications in philosophical, psychoanalytic, and scientific journals. Engaging in interdisciplinary discussions, I contribute to the exchange of ideas across diverse fields within the scholarly community.
My academic pursuits are driven by a passion for pushing disciplinary boundaries and exploring new avenues of enquiry, aiming to deepen our understanding of the complexities of the human experience. I look forward to continuing to probe these fascinating intersections of philosophy, science, and history in my ongoing academic journey.
