I am a fifth year PhD student in the Department of Linguistics, University of Pennsylvania. I am affiliated with Penn Phonetics Laboratory. My advisor is Jianjing Kuang.

I work on phonetics and laboratory phonology. Much of my research focuses on Shanghainese, a Wu dialect of Chinese.

I received my bachelor's degree in Information Management and Information System from Peking University.
