Hello! My name is LIANG Yuqing Lilian. I am currently a PhD student at the Department of Linguistics and Translation at City University of Hong Kong (CityU).

Before embarking on my academic challenge at CityU, I completed my Master of Arts in Chinese Linguistics and Language Acquisition at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and my Bachelor of Arts in English at the Guangdong University of Foreign Studies in Guangzhou, China. I used to serve as a research assistant at the Childhood Bilingualism Research Centre at CUHK from 2020.8-2020.12 and then I came to CityU as a research assistant to work with my supervisor, Dr Ziyin Mai Maggie, on a government-funded project on early trilingualism from 2021.1 to 2021.8.

I was born and raised in Guangzhou, China, speaking Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese as my native languages, and attended the Guangdong Experimental High School.

Research interest

The current focus of my research is early language acquisition of bilingual and trilingual children, especially early lexical development.
