Personal profile


Prior to the current post, I worked at the University of Bath as a Research Fellow and a Visiting Lecturer in the School of Education here at the University of Birmingham. I have also taught English for general and academic purposes in China for some years before moving to England.

Research interests

Prior to my current post, I have worked at the University of Bath for an ESRC-funded project on language policy and transnational families. My doctoral research was a fully funded sociolinguistic study on multilingual educational practices.  I am interested in using ethnographic methods combined with secondary data analysis to research sociolinguistic practices of individuals, families, schools, and communities. In the past few years, I have particularly worked on everyday multimodal discourses to discuss ethnical identity, ideology in language education, and cross-boundary communication. My latest publication can be found in the journals of Multilingual and Multicultural DevelopmentLanguage Teaching, and International Journal of The Sociology of Language, as well as in several edited books including The Routledge Handbook of Language and Superdiversity and Translanguaging in Everyday Practices.
