My name is Matthew Christensen and I am a Professor of Chinese at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, where I have been teaching since 1995. I received a B.A. in Chinese with a minor in international relations from BYU, and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Chinese linguistics and pedagogy from The Ohio State University.
For the bulk of my career I have been training students to study, work, and live in China. My interests are in Chinese language pedagogy, the interaction between language and culture, intercultural communication, Chinese linguistics, poetry, food culture, photography, and travel (among many other things).
