Bio

Research interests: sociocultural linguistics (SCL) and intercultural communication competence (ICC). 

My current independent study is to take an ethnographic approach to exploring the learning experiences of first-year international Chinese undergraduates during their overseas study in a U.S. research university. Specifically, I focus primarily on how social identities and cultural practices are brought into being through students’ linguistic interaction in the classroom.

Teaching interests: Chinese language, second language acquisition (SLA)
