UM: China

Bloomberg News reports about concerns that U.S. intelligence officials have over increasing signs of spying at American universities. The report cites an incident at the University of Michigan, and quotes professor Daniel J. Scheeres – who now teaches at the University of Colorado, but says he encountered a situation at UM with a Chinese visiting scholar that made him uncomfortable: “It was pretty clear to me that the stuff she was interested in probably had some military satellite-orbit applications. Once I saw that, I didn’t really tell her anything new, or anything that couldn’t be published. I didn’t engage that deeply with her.” [Source]
