About Me

Welcome to my presence on the internet. I am a foreign expert in phonology at Southwest University in Chongqing, China.

I am a recent graduate of the Ph.D. program in linguistics at the University of Michigan. At Michigan my focus was in phonology under the advising of Professors Andries Coetzee and San Duanmu. I am also passionate about language description and language teaching (Chinese and English as well as methodology). Most of my research focuses on the Sino-Tibetan languages; especially Chinese (Standard Chinese, Taiwan Hakka), Bai, and some of the languages spoken by the Yi (specifically Nuosu and Samei). I have taught courses in linguistics, Chinese language, and English writing.
