A graduate of Harvard University, she studied East Asian languages and civilizations. This term Sun is teaching second-year Chinese and Introduction to Chinese Civilization, and will be teaching other area studies courses during the winter and spring terms.

She wants to focus on her own research and sees herself in five years on a tenure track towards getting a full professor position.
