About me

Dongbing Zhang (aka Mus / 张冬冰)

PhD (University of Sydney)
MA, BA (Beijing Normal University)

I am Associate Professor of Linguistics at the School of International Studies, University of International Business and Economics (UIBE) in Beijing. My research interests lie primarily in the linguistic, social, and neurological aspects of spoken interaction. I am currently developing a description of Khorchin Mongolian grammar and discourse based on casual conversations with a focus on interpersonal meaning within the framework of systemic functional linguistics.

I am a member of the Systemic Language Modelling Network and a life member of the Australian Systemic Functional Linguistics Association.
