'We need China expertise beyond sinology'
Ruth Schimanowski spent a large part of her childhood in Africa. It wasn't until she was 15 that she returned to Germany, where she graduated from high school. After that, she immediately left again – to Taipei to learn Mandarin. Then she returned to Berlin, where she studied physics and spent several years abroad: She first came to Beijing as a DAAD scholarship holder. In between, she went to New Orleans to conduct biophysical experiments. But now, she has been living in the Chinese capital for over 20 years.
