Hong Yu Wong is currently Group Leader of the Philosophy of Neuroscience Research Group at the Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience, a DFG excellence cluster at the University of Tübingen. He was recently recommended for tenure and will shortly be appointed Professor of Philosophy at the University of Tübingen. His primary research interests concern the relations between perception and action, and the role of the body in structuring these relations - topics explored in his forthcoming book Embodied Agency (OUP, 2016).
