Biography

As a sociolinguist and linguistic anthropologist, I see language as a window to the understanding of human social relationships. My training in ethnography, conversation and discourse analysis gives me insight into researching language in social context in Hong Kong and beyond. My research has focused primarily on bilingualism, transnationalism, identities and ideologies in three contexts:

1. Multilingualism and Language Ideologies in Hong Kong

2. Indonesian Chinese Transnationals: Mobilities, Multilingualism, and Gender ideologies

3. Social Media Discourse and Gender Ideologies of Kong Girls (with M. Agnes Kang)

For Project 1, I produced a documentary film as part of my fieldwork to explore the social meanings of code-switching in Hong Kong. Visit my website to learn more.
