PhD student, Research Assistant
I received my M.Sc. in TESOL (Teaching English to the Speakers of Other Languages) from the University of Edinburgh, and my B.A. in English Translation from Sichuan International Studies University in China. I have worked as an IELTS test preparation instructor in China before I came to TAMUC. My major research interest is humor in second language classrooms and my previous study focused on the use of verbal humor as teaching materials in the second language classrooms. I am also interested in second language acquisition and language pedagogy.
