In 2008, he was the recipient of both the George Polk Award for environmental reporting and Asia Society’s Osborn Elliott Award for a series of stories exposing environmental problems linked to China’s Three Gorges Dam project. He was also part of a team of Wall Street Journal reporters that won a Pulitzer Prize in 2007 for International Reporting on China for reports on the adverse impact of China’s growth. Previously, he covered OPEC for Dow Jones Newswires in London and served as Beijing bureau chief for Asiaweek magazine. His first job in China was as a copy editor at China Daily, the official English-language newspaper in Beijing.
