I earned my B.A. in Economics and M.A. in Linguistics from the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, China, and Ph. D. in Mass Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I teach public relation courses and research methods. My research focuses mainly on health communication and cross-cultural communication.
Before joining the Blugold community, I was a WildCat at Central Washington University as an Assistant Professor of Public Relations and Advertising. As a Wisconsin Badger graduate, getting back to serve this dairy and ginseng state makes me feel proud to practice "Wisconsin Idea." So I emphasize the "learning-by-doing" philosophy in teaching and conduct interdisciplinary studies in research.
