Associate Professor & Coordinator
I am delighted to have joined the learning community here at UT Knoxville in fall of 2016. Originally from China, I came to Laramie, Wyoming, from DeKalb, Illinois. For the past 14 years, I have served on the faculty of the Adult and Post-Secondary Education Program at the University of Wyoming. I have designed courses that help infuse global vision and international perspectives through comparative lenses. I have been advocating for learning from the Rest not just from the West. Through my research and teaching, I say that education and learning should promote not only lifelong learners but also life-wide learners, not only national citizens but also global citizens with holistic development especially cultural competency. I am a mother of two and I enjoy walking and swimming with my kids. I look forward to exploring East Tennessee with my family.
