Dr. Xi Chen is Senior Lecturer in Linguistics. Her research examines how language is used to index meanings – a topic that is of significance in Pragmatics and Sociolinguistics. Beyond the two immediate relevant disciplines, she also investigates the topic on the interface with applied linguistics and computational linguistics. Xi has a particular interest in Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and English. Informed by her research and language skills, she teaches language and culture modules for Korean Studies at the undergraduate level, translation studies at the graduate level, and computational method sessions at the Graduate Research School.
