ABOUT

I am a Ph.D. candidate (expect to complete in May, 2022) under the supervision of Prof. James Morgan in the department of Cognitive, Linguistic and Psychological Sciences (CLPS) at Brown University. 

The interconnections between phonology, lexicon and spoken language processing fascinate me. I believe that the phonological system of a language could shape its lexicon as a collection of sound-meaning mappings, and the distributional features of the lexicon could influence how adults process the words and how young kids learn the words.

My current project is about the distribution of homophones (“knight” and “night”) across-languages, and how native speakers of some languages that differ drastically along this dimension (English, Mandarin, Japanese) resolve the ambiguity of homophony in speech. You can find the future directions I want to pursue in “Research”.

Thank you for visiting my website and have a wonderful day!
