Yufei Du – Program Manager


Yufei was born in Shandong Province of China, the hometown of both Confucius and Tsingtao Beer. He spent his first 17 years in China as some sort of “a good student;” later he went to college at Tufts University in Massachusetts. Although Yufei had majors in both International Relations and Economics, his curiosity has led him seek knowledge far beyond fixed academic disciplines. Yufei likes to observe things (including himself) and explores why. To him, the question “why” is always about “how come” rather than “for what;” therefore knowing one’s opinion is far less interesting than figuring out why one has that opinion. Yufei started with JUMP! as a Princeton in Asia fellow at JUMP! Beijing Hub, and this year takes up his new role as a Program Manager.
