Research interests: Bilingualism, heritage language acquisition, second language acquisition, socio-pragmatics of grammatical particles

I am a third-year PhD student in East Asian Linguistics at UCLA. I am interested in how heritage bilingual speakers are different from their homeland counterparts in terms of underlying speech processing mechanism. I am also interested in the roles of different linguistic factors (e.g. language experience, quality and quantity of the language input, language dominance, language identity) play in affecting bilinguals’ speech production and processing.
