Since I came to MU in the Fall of 2010, I have taught various Chinese Language and Literature courses. I have taught Elementary Chinese, Intermediate Chinese I, Advanced Chinese I and II, Chinese Poetry into English, and Modern and Contemporary Chinese Literature courses. Before I came to MU, I taught Chinese Language and Literature in various Universities in America. I received Purple Chalk Teaching Award of the Arts and Science for the year of 2016.
When I was in China, I was an editor and reporter of the China National Radio Station of PRC, and I received a special award for reportage on the Terrible Forest Fire on Da-Xing-An Mountain in 1987 from All-China Journalists Association and was a co-winner of the award for the “1987 Best Annual News-Editing” from the China National Radio Station of the PRC. I am interested in English to Chinese translation, and or Chinese to English collaborative translation. I am also interested in Chinese creative writing, mostly in prose and poetry.
