Profile

Currently majoring in English at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), I am a pre-service secondary school English teacher based in Hong Kong SAR. I have been working in the private supplementary education sector to prepare senior secondary students for the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) English Language examination.  

As a prospective research postgraduate student, I would like to research on instructed second language acquisition (ISLA). To be more specific, I hope to investigate ways in which teachers can utilise technology, such as generative artificial intelligence (GenAI), to enhance the second language learning of English morphosyntax. My research interests also include variationist sociolinguistics as I am particularly intrigued by the social meanings of Cantonese-English code-switching within the regional context of Hong Kong.

Seeking to grow professionally as a teacher-researcher, I aspire to narrow the gap between research and pedagogy with a view to maximising their mutual benefits.
