Science in the Divide

Science in the Divide is a monthly column about science, civil society, and humanity caught between the conflicting cultures, political agendas, and value systems of China and the United States.

It is written by Yangyang Cheng, a postdoctoral research associate at Cornell University, and a member of the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. Born and raised in China, Cheng received her Ph.D. in physics from the University of Chicago in 2015, and her Bachelor’s in Science from the University of Science and Technology of China’s School for the Gifted Young. Her writings have appeared in the New York Times, Foreign Policy, MIT Technology Review, ChinaFile, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and other publications.
