    Personal profile

    Research interests

    My research interests lie in the intersection of language and gender, specifically in the formation of sexual and gender minority discourses and identities. My work explores how these discourses and identities are constructed in various fields, including law, medicine, and society. One of my primary research interests is the study of the interactions between transgender individuals and the fields of law and medicine. My research specifically focuses on how language is used to construct and shape representations of transgender individuals in legal and medical contexts. I am interested in understanding the ways in which language use can contribute to the marginalization or empowerment of transgender individuals, and how transgender individuals themselves can use language to shape their own identities and advocate for their rights. Additionally, I investigate ways to promote sexuality-related discussions in classrooms and advance queer pedagogy and gender-inclusive education in Hong Kong's sexuality education.
