She is still an avid reader of Chinese, Japanese, and English fiction and poetry, especially the work of Haruki Murakami. She has translated poems by Sen Zi for the Copper Canyon Press/NEA Chinese poetry anthology Push Open the Window and has an ongoing contract with a Chinese publishing house to translate The Letters of Shen Congwen. Her translations have been published on Granta.com, Chutzpah! and Asymptote. She is the managing editor of Pathlight: New Chinese Writing, the English edition of People's Literature magazine.
