I am currently a lecturer of the English Language Center, College of Liberal Arts, Shantou University. After obtaining an MA degree in Language Learning and Education from the University of York, I worked at the Students Affairs department of Shantou University as a Tutor from 2011 to 2014. I then went to the English Language Center as an English language Instructor from 2014 to 2016 and was promoted Lecturer in 2016.

I have a great passion for language teaching and tutoring. I have taught various language courses, including Foundation, Level 1 and Level 2 in the ELC, as well as English Composition 1 and English Composition 2 in the English Department for double-major students of English.

Besides, I have been worked as an independent language learning consultant for more than three years and serve as a language tutor in the Chinese room, which provides one-to-one Chinese instruction for international faculty and students.I am also a co-leader of the activity Small Talk.

My research interests mainly focus on teacher identity, conceptual metaphor and computer-assisted language learning. I have given presentations at different academic conferences at home and abroad (e.g., Nanjing, Suzhou, Japan, Australia and Russia).
