Researcher biography

I have over 30 years' experience teaching of teaching in universities in China, Hong Kong, USA, and Australia. Having spent a significant part of my life outside my heritage culture (Chinese), I've developed a profound interest in examining how culture influences people's thinking, doing, and being. I research and publish in the areas of immigration, multiculturalism, acculturation, intercultural conflicts, ageing migrants, and intergroup relations. I also research on the media effect on how people perceive themselves, how they think they are perceived by others, and how self- and other perceptions interact with each other to influence attitudes, behaviours, and intergroup relations.
