After Nieman and Radcliffe fellowships at Harvard, she returned to China for another decade as the award-winning East Asia correspondent for PRI/BBC’s “The World,” focusing both on China’s transformation within its borders and the global impact of its rise. Among her awards is an Overseas Press Club award for the seven-part series “Young China,” on the ripple effects in Chinese society of the One Child Generation coming of age; a Sigma Delta Chi/Society of Professional Journalists award for a series on China’s quest to become a global power in innovation, and a Dupont-Columbia Silver Baton and a Scripps-Howard National Journalism award, shared with two colleagues at “The World,” for a series on stem cell research.
