My research interest includes second language acquisition, language education, and Chinese and Thai linguistics.

My other interests include technology, music and teaching. I like to apply new technology to academic research and language teaching. During my internship at China Radio International  in 2011, I co-hosted a music program where we taught Chinese to the Thai audience through song lyrics.
