My expertise is in intercultural workplace communication in China, especially in the area of conflict resolution. My research is at the interface of sociolinguistics, discourse analysis and social psychology. I collect and analyse ethnographic data including audio-recordings of meetings, participant interviews, organizational documents, emails and observation notes. My monograph was titled as Intercultural Communication in the Chinese Workplace by Palgrave.
