I am an American scientist of the world

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The ongoing trade war between the United States and China has led to questions about the loyalty and intent of Chinese American scientists. In this essay, I use my own small stories to recall the history of my generation of Chinese American scientists and our journey in this country to build career and life, all in fewer than 1000 words. It intends to be a tribute to the generosity of the American spirit and its openness to strangers, which is the very reason behind the inexhaustible creativity and world-leading research of this country.
