I was born and raised in Wuhu, a beautiful city by the Yangtze River in Southeastern China.
I studied Chinese Language in my undergraduate program at Fudan University. I then started my graduate study in Chinese Philology at Fudan but gradually found myself more interested in generative linguistics, which led to my decision to come to the US.
My first stop in America was the Linguistics Department at the University of Kansas, where I finished an MA. Working towards my PhD at UCLA Linguistics, I am mostly interested in comparative syntax of Sinitic languages.
Outside of linguistics, I am passionate about soccer and I follow AC Milan. I scored an equalizer but lost a penalty kick in the shoot-out in the final of The 2008 Graduation Cup at Fudan.
