Haitong spent half of his life in China and the other half in the United States. While at Tufts, he majored in International Relations, co-led a club organizing annual academic symposiums on U.S.-China relations, and studied in France and the United Kingdom. Haitong is now reading for an M.Phil. in International Relations at Oxford, conducting research on U.S.-China defense engagement during the Cold War and having picnics with his cohort at Port Meadow. Haitong greatly enjoys performing musical theatre, visiting history museums, and cooking. He is fluent in three languages and has traveled to every continent in the world. More than occasionally, Haitong rows with Pembroke College.
