Junior Fellow


Eric Yang is a senior at Harvard College studying history and government. He has also completed a semester abroad at Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management. Before joining the Bush China Foundation in March as a research intern, he interned at McKinsey & Company in Shanghai and the American Enterprise Institute. Outside of the classroom, he serves as the vice president of the Harvard College China Forum, North America’s longest-running and leading student-run conference on China. He has also been a director of a Harvard community service program that provides tutoring for the U.S. naturalization exam to Chinese-American residents in Greater Boston.

Eric’s research interests center around how American and Chinese historical memory have shaped the U.S.-China bilateral relationship and both countries’ domestic politics.
