Current Research

I’m a second year PhD student at the Department of Linguistics and English Language. I received my MA in Chinese Linguistics from Peking University in 2018. My current research mainly focuses on the topic of linguistic relativity. Specifically, I am aiming to investigate whether and how language knowledge shapes bilingual speakers’ spatial concepts. To answer this question, I am applying a range of experimental approaches in my research, from behavioral measures to neurophysiological ones including the Event-Related Potentials (ERPs).
