Self Introduction

I am a PhD student in the program of Applied Linguistics & Technology at Iowa State University.

My primary research interests lie in second language acquistion, phonetics/phonology, technology, and ESL learning and teaching.

Since my first voluntary experience as an Engish instructor in a rural area in Fujian (see picture above), a Southern province in China, a strong enthusiasm in teaching has grown in me. Then I became a graduate student in Applied Linguistics & Technology, and am determined to take education as my life career.
