Enkhbayar Janchivnyambuu (Mongolia)

December 21st, 2009


My name is Enkhbayar Janchivnyambuu, and I was born and raised in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. I received my undergraduate degree in philosophy at the Tenger Institute in Mongolia and completed M.S. degree in administration and supervision at the Gallaudet University in the USA.

I began my career as a research fellow at the Institute of Philosophy, Sociology and Law of Mongolian Academy of Science in 1998. In the fall of 2001, I left my position of research fellow and I enrolled graduate school at Gallaudet University. After my return from USA, where I had lived for seven years, I decided to establish a Mongolian Sign language Center and found my previous job at IPSL as well.

As a researcher in the field of social science and philosophy, my primary philosophical interests include the history of philosophy, philosophy of religion and pragmatism. I also have a strong research interest in deaf rights and sign language. My deaf related activities began by the time I became a board member of Mongolian Association of the Deaf in 1993. Being a deaf is a large part of why I decided to be involved in non-profit organizations for deaf.

In my spare time, I love to read, play in chess tournaments, and travel to beautiful places.
