Amid rapidly escalating tension between the United States and China, professors, scientists, and students of Chinese ethnic origin as well as those engaging in academic collaborations with China are under heightened scrutiny by the federal government. In 2015, Xiaoxing Xi, Laura H. Carnell Professor of Physics at Temple University, became a casualty of this campaign despite being innocent. This experience gave him insights into the challenges Chinese scientists face and the immediate threat to the open environment in fundamental research.
