Previously,  I served as a lecturer of English at universities both in China and in Singapore. I also worked for Dow Jones & Co. (Singapore) as a research editor before. I hold an M.Ed in TESOL (the University of Edinburgh, UK) and an M.Sc in Conference Interpreting and Translation (Heriot-Watt University, UK). 


I got my Ph.D in Education at the University of Reading (UoR) in 2017.  During the same year, I was appointed to a position of postdoctoral research assistant at the Institute of Education, UoR. From 2018 to 2019, I worked as a teaching fellow in education at UoR. In Jan. 2019, I joined UCL Institute of Education.


Apart from teaching and doing research, between 2012 to 2014, I was also involved in, as an in-class interpreter and event coordinator, the training provided to the Chinese University Administrators and Officers who were on the three months residential course ran by the University of Reading in collaboration with China Scholarship Council.

Research Summary

My PhD set out to study the multilingual education of Chinese ethnic minority groups in China. In particular, I explored the perceptions of and attitudes towards multilingual education from the ethnic Yi minority students in a trilingual educational programme (home language, Mandarin Chinese and English) at tertiary level. I was also a postdoctoral research assistant at the 4Ps Project “Practitioners and Parents Play Partnership” (funded by The Froebel Trust, UK), at the University of Reading.


For details of the 4Ps project, please visit https://research.reading.ac.uk/inedutogether/


My research interests include, but not limited to, multilingual education and multilingualism, ethnicity and education, and finally parental involvement in ethnic minority education. I welcome proposals at doctoral level which are related to those topics. I am also very keen on the development of qualitative research methodologies and research methods.
