Hi! My name is Suet-Ying Lam. I am currently a second-year PhD student at the Department of Linguistics, University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Before that, I got my BA in Linguistics and Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). At HKU, I worked with Dr. Heeju Hwang at HKU Language Processing Lab, with a focus on reference processing.

About how to pronounce my name: it can be roughly transcribed as [syʔ jɪŋ], or in Mandarin [ɕyə jiŋ] 雪莹. If you still find it difficult, [jɪŋ] or [jiŋ] is also fine.
