Research Interests: My main interest lies in L2 acquisition of speech prosody and its pedagogical implications. My PhD project taps into the effectiveness of explicit instruction and audio/audio-visual feedback on Chinese ESL/EFL learners' comprehension and production of English intonation. I've also developed my interest in cross-dialectal perception and production of tonal aspects of Chinese languages.
