I am currently a PhD student in Linguistics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and a member of Childhood Bilingualism Research Centre. I received my M.A. degree in Linguistics from CUHK. Under the supervision of Prof. Virginia Yip, I finished my MA thesis in investigating the acquisition of Cantonese sentence-final particles by a Mandarin-speaking child. Before coming to CUHK, I received my BA degree in GDUFS. During my undergraduate study, I used to be an exchange student in I-Shou University, Taiwan.
I was born and raised in Shenzhen, Guangdong. I grew up speaking Mandarin, Cantonese, and Hakka. Being a bilingual myself, I am interested in bilingual children's language acquisition.
