I am an Assistant Professor of Chinese and the Coordinator of the Multi-Section Lower Division Chinese language courses at Iowa State University. I earned my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology and Educational Technology at Michigan State University. My main area of research is second language learning with technology. My current research program addresses how blended and flipped learning environments can be designed to maximize learners’ language and culture learning, and how teachers can help students improve their self-regulated learning skills in the blended learning environments. My research informs my teaching.
