Dongbing Zhang (Mus / 张冬冰)
PhD candidate (USyd, completed)
MA (BNU), BA (BNU)
I am a Postgraduate Teaching Fellow at the University of Sydney. Prior to Sydney, I held a full time lecturer position at China University of Mining and Technology in Beijing and taught English as a Foreign Language at Beijing Normal University and China Agricultural University.
My research focuses on the systemic description of Khorchin Mongolian. In my PhD thesis, I explored the interpersonal discourse and grammatical systems in Khorchin Mongolian from the perspective of systemic theory.
I am also interested in functional language typology, the study of conversation in general, and the semiotic construction of worldviews. I teach in areas related to Systemic Functional Grammar, Discourse Semantics, and English as a Foreign Language.
I am a member of the Systemic Language Modelling Network and a life member of the Australian Systemic Functional Linguistics Association.
