About Jennifer Dunn
I am a freelance journalist. I lived in China for nearly a decade and reported from the nation's border regions on ethnic minorities, land disputes, development policies, urbanization, and human rights. I more recently reported from Colombia on armed conflict, public health, coal mining, and the environment.
From 2007 to 2012 I worked in southern China as lead U.S. ethnographer on an international women's health research project. I conducted hundreds of in-depth interviews with female sex workers documenting their lives and HIV/STI prevention practices.
I completed my MA in Chinese Studies at University of Hawaii at Manoa, and my BA in International Studies and Chinese at University of Oregon.
Past positions include: Production Director at KTUH FM Honolulu; Assistant Producer on Peabody Award-winning public radio series Crossing East; and assistant managing editor at China Review International.
My stories have aired on Latino USA, Snap Judgement, Free Speech Radio News, Deutsche Welle, World Vision Report, Making Contact, and a number of other public radio programs.
