Research

My doping research is mainly focused on 'what is sport' and 'what is human body and person' in terms of philosophical research. Especially, I have researched the doping issue from the concepts of free will, the property regarding body and  person, self ownership, and self-duty. I get interested in Kantian deontorogical philosophy and John Locke's  philosophy(including the concept of self-ownership). I also get interested in how such abstract notions could be applied  to modern issues including doping matters in elite sport circles or ethical problems of human enhancement.
