What else does Dr. Sun do beyond physics? Well, a lot. Although he has been abroad since 1985, the link to the Chinese culture and love in Chinese food are not changed. He served for two years as principal of the Oak Ridge Chinese School in the state Tennessee, a non-profit school that teachs the Chinese language to children from local Chinese American families.

Amomg his many hobbies, he particularly likes traveling, fishing, gardening, photography, and stamp-collecting. He likes also to sing Peking Opera pieces and play the Peking Opera instrument (Jing Hu).
