Mphil student, Education University of Hong Kong

Hello! My name is CAI Qiuyun.

I'm currently an M.Phil. student in the Department of Early Childhood Education at the Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK), under the supervision of Dr. Cathy FONG Yui Chi.

Before this, I worked as a research assistant at the Department of Linguistics and Translation at the City University of Hong Kong (CityU), supervised by Dr. Ziyin MAI Maggie.

I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) with a M.A. in Chinese Linguistics and Language Acquisition and Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU) with a B.A. in English Language and Literature. I used to serve as a research assistant at the CUHK from 2019.09 to 2021.12.

I'm interested in the early language development of multilingual children, first and second language acquisition, and parent-child interaction.

I grew up in Guangdong Province, speaking Cantonese, Mandarin and Hakka.
