Focus of Graduate Studies:
Doctoral student in intercultural and cross-cultural communication with quantitative methods.
I am interested in intercultural communication including ethnic minority, immigration and acculturation. Particularly, I am focusing on the involvement in the host society and attachment to the home country, as well as the preservation of minority cultural values. I am also interested in inter-generational communication within the immigrant family at different acculturation levels.
