My name is Lydia. I received my PhD in Linguistics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before joining the Department of Linguistics and Translation at City University of Hong Kong in 2018. I work in both sociolinguistics and discourse analysis and my research focuses on how people use and understand language in relation to their national, moral and gendered identities in a globalizing world.
To read my academic work you can visit my academia.edu page.
I have also worked with my friends and colleagues at the University of Illinois to create materials that apply theories about language to the classroom context in the "Language and Diversity in K-12 Education Initiative". In the resources tab you can get access to these materials.
