Born in Yangzhou (China), Dr. Ding had spent 18 years in that culture-condensed historical city before he went to college. After he graduated from Beijing Institute of International Relations in 1997, he had worked as a research fellow in a prestigious think tank in Beijing for three years. Before he came to the states in August 2000, he had become a published author, with dozens of articles published in Chinese scholarly journals, magazines and newspapers.

Dr. Ding teaches course on Asian politics, information technology and world politics, international law and organizations, and international relations in East Asia. His research explores the dynamic links among identity, institution, and governance. His main field is the globalization of Chinese politics, which explores the overlap of domestic politics, foreign policy and global governance. He is the author of The Dragon's Hidden Wings: How China Rises with Its Soft Power (Lexington Books 2008). Dr. Ding's refereed journal articles have appeared in Pacific Affairs, Journal of Contemporary China, Asian Perspective, Nationalism and Ethnic Politics, Journal of Asian and African Studies, East Asia: An International Quarterly, Journal of Chinese Political Science, and Journal of Information Technology and Politics.

In 2008, Dr. Ding received the Institute for Culture and Society's Award for Outstanding Scholarship. In 2010, he received the Liberal Arts College Dean's Salute to Excellence. And in 2011, he received the Provost's Award for Excellence in Research/Scholarly Activity.
