- I am currently a 5th year Linguistics PhD student at the University of Pittsburgh.
- Before I came to the U.S., I attended Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, where I studied Medical text of traditional Chinese Medicine, Old Chinese, Chinese literature, and Chinese linguistics.
- Grew up in a "dialect"-speaking region (Nanchang, Jiangxi), I developed my research interests in Chinese dialectology during my college years.
- I see myself as a "crosser" going between traditional Chinese linguistics and Sociolinguistics.
- Recently, I have developed interdisciplinary interests in studies of gender and sexuality; adopting discourse methods, I examine the gendered intersubjectivity through discourse and narratives about domestic violence.
