Hello. I just got my Ph.D. in linguistics at UC Berkeley (May 2012!). I did my undergraduate work (in linguistics as well) at Stanford and also have studied at San Francisco State University and at National Taiwan University (台大).
My dissertation work is on Ersu/Tosu/Lizu (Lizu is also known as Lyuzu, Lǚsū, or Gura), a group of Tibeto-Burman languages spoken in southwestern Sichuan, and I have done fieldwork on the Mianning dialect of Lizu. I also work at The Sino-Tibetan Etymological Dictionary and Thesaurus Project (STEDT for short).
