Biography
Before starting the journey of being a research student, I had worked for eight years at Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press (FLTRP) in Beijing, China. My work was mainly on development of diagnostic tests for high school students and content development for national English public speaking, writing, and reading competitions which attract over a million contestants annually from more than 1,000 universities across China. 


I have presented at a dozen international conferences, including the AALA 2021 online, AALA 2018 in Shanghai, IATEFL 2017 in Glasgow, ISATT 2015 in Auckland, and CCCC 2012 in St. Louis.   

Research Summary
Fascinated by pragmatics and enlightened through my previous work experience related to language testing and assessment, I combined the two fields of study and formed my current research focus: the assessment of second language pragmatic competence. Specifically I am targeting at English for Academic Purposes.
