Prof. Quentin Zhen Qin is an Assistant Professor of Linguistics in the Division of Humanities, and Associate Director of Center for Chinese Linguistics. Prior to joining HKUST in 2020, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Research Center for Language, Cognition, and Neuroscience, Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Prof. Qin’s current research uses psycholinguistic methods to examine how lexical tones in Chinese languages are perceptually learned and consolidated by second-language learners over the lifespan.
