In pragmatics, she has been working on comparative analyses of Japanese and Korean grammar collaborating with Korean linguists. Also, in her work on heritage language education, she pays special attentions to how the notion of “heritage language learner” is constructed, and how her findings can help young heritage speakers navigate in this globalizing world.
