Originally from China and having learned (and is still learning) English as a second language, she has great interest in the area of linguistics that is Second Language Acquisition. She is specifically interested in areas including reading and writing in a second language, vocabulary acquisition, and literacy skills transfer. She does research in second language writing development and reading-based writing such as summary and synthesis. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her beloved husband and two wonderful kids, reading, and hiking.
