Position Title
Graduate Student



  • B.A. and M.A., Philosophy, Seoul National University


My primary research interest lies in various strands of structuralism, e.g., structuralism in philosophy of mathematics and structural realism in philosophy of science. I also have interests in metaphysics of science, philosophy of logic, applied ethics, etc.

The working title of my dissertation is "Category-theoretic Structuralism as a Foundation of Mathematics." My project investigates the foundational roles of a category-theoretic framework. I ask how category theory can be autonomous and consider its appeal as a foundational framework, especially from the practice-oriented perspective.
