About me (my C.V.)
ORCID ID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-6117-7809
I am an Assistant Professor of Linguistics in the Division of Humanities at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I am also Associate Director of Center for Chinese Linguistics and a faculty associate of Center for Aging Science, HKUST.
I got my Ph.D degree in Linguistics from the Department of Linguistics, University of Kansas. Prior to joining the faculty at HKUST, I worked as Postdoctoral Researcher at the Research Center for Language, Cognition, and Neuroscience, Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Experimental phonetics, second language (L2) acquisition, and psycholinguistics are my research areas. My research uses behavioral (e.g. eye-tracking) and neural methods to test how lexical prosody (e.g. Chinese tones) is processed by adult L2 learners. I recently started studying sleep-mediated memory consolidation and age-related cognitive decline in learning Chinese tones. The research aims to explain learners’ (in) ability to process non-native prosody across the lifespan from an interdisciplinary perspective.
