Biographical Sketch

I can speak Chinese and English; but without love, they are nothing.

I can do math, from arithmetic to topology; but without love, they are nothing.

I can teach, from newborn to adult; but without love, teaching becomes hurting.

I like doing research, from mathematics to human beings. They are both amazing!  

But without love, research may become hunting, and hurting.

My life goal: never stop learning;

Never stop loving...

Research Interests

Primary interest: How to help my students build a positive relationship with math. 

Other interests: Mathematics as a language, Mathematics discourse, Mathematical identity, Math learning of English language learners.
