Research Interests: 

Liyong Xing received her Double B.A. degrees in History and Economics from Peking University (Beijing, China) in 2003. A three-year undergraduate research project on Beijing’s fuel system (15th- 20th centuries), sponsored by China’s Chun-Tsung Endowment, began her general interest in history of Chinese science, technology, and medicine. Liyong is currently pursuing a degree at Penn Law, and hopes to finish with both an L.L.D. and Ph.D. Her potential dissertation will be a comparative study about the transnational movement of hazardous computer waste from the developed nations to the developing, particularly from the U.S. to China.
