Chinese Historical and Applied Linguistics
My research interests focus on teaching Chinese as a second/foreign language, second language acquisition, and Chinese culture studies. Besides, I am also interested in Chinese language development, the history of Chinese, language contact and Chinese literature.
Besides my studies, I like making Chinese paper-cuts and practicing calligraphy when I am free. I also like outdoor activities, such as hiking, running, climbing mountains and so on.
