I have been a free-lance contributor for several major media outlets in China since 1997. My biographical novel, A 12-Year-Old’s Studying Experience in the US (12岁我到美国读中学), was published by China’s Children and Juvenile Publishing House (中国少年儿童出版社) in June 1999, and has since been reprinted three times.

In April 2011, while I was working at the LSE, I was invited by the Chinese newspaper, People’s Daily (Overseas Edition) (人民日报海外版), to start a weekly column on a British/European perspective on higher education. I was intrigued by this rare opportunity and, for a number of reasons, I originally thought this must be a short-lived column. As it turns out, the column, Small World (一桌一椅一世界), has been very well received among overseas Chinese audience. My editors have been most supportive. I have been told that it is the longest running column in the People’s Daily’s history. I eventually ended this column in August 2017 when I felt the pressure to censor my own writing.

To date, I have been interviewed by more than 20 media outlets, including the WIRED, Nature Index, the Associated Press, de Volkskrant, Weekendavisen, China Central Television, Beijing Radio Station, as well as the Chinese edition of Cosmopolitan and Madame Figaro magazines.
