Join the Young China Professionals (YCP) and Young China Watchers (YCW) for a discussion with Matt Sheehan, author of The Transpacific Experiment: How China and California Collaborate and Compete for Our Future. Matt has carved a niche for himself in the China space as one of the leading experts on the relationship between China and California.

Driven by an interest in human stories, Matt has split his time between Beijing and the Bay Area, exploring the unique array of bonds that link the two countries together. In addition to his work on the China-California connection, Matt's current research focuses on the artificial intelligence ecosystem in China. He previously served as the first China correspondent for The WorldPost, where he reported on issues ranging from protests in Hong Kong to the daily life of Muslims in China. In our discussion, Matt will describe his professional path – highlighting stories from his time on the ground in Beijing and anecdotes from the research for his book. Lastly, he will lend insight into non-traditional careers in the China space and discuss the challenges and opportunities these paths present.

Matt’s remarks will be followed by Q&A and mingling.
