I received my Ph.D. in Instructional Psychology and Technology at Brigham Young University in August 2007 with research emphasis: Second Language Acquisition (Chinese emphasis). My dissertation topic: An analysis of grammar (syntactic) errors and attrition by adult native English speaking learners of Mandarin as L2. I received an M.A. in Language Acquisition (Chinese Emphasis) from Brigham Young University and a B.A. in Chinese literature and Linguistics, National Tsing Hua (清华) University, Taiwan. Recently, I was awarded the Karl G. Maeser Professional Faculty Excellence Award by Brigham Young University in 2013.

Teaching Interests

My professional interests include second language acquisition, attrition, and pedagogy, and Chinese media course and curriculum design. My interest in integrating multimedia technology into classroom teaching has grown out of her recent experience in designing a project. Because becoming more adept in Mandarin TV news broadcasts is an essential requirement for advanced students. I have also collected and designed a set of materials for teaching Chinese through television news especially for them.
