Dongbing Zhang (Mus / 张冬冰)
PhD (USyd, thesis under examination)
MA (BNU), BA (BNU)
I am currently a Postgraduate Teaching Fellow at the University of Sydney. I have recently submitted my PhD thesis for examination (Negotiating Interpersonal Meaning in Khorchin Mongolian: Discourse and Grammar, supervised by Prof James Martin and Dr Yaegan Doran).
Prior to my PhD I taught English as a foreign language full time at China University of Mining and Technology in Beijing and part time at Beijing Normal University and China Agricultural University.
My primary research focus is on developing a systemic account of Khorchin Mongolian – including both its discourse and lexicogrammatical resources. I also do research on the semiotic construction of identity, TESOL, and the discourse patterns in Mandarin Chinese.
