A photo of researcher Wang Xiyue on Princeton's history department shows him posing under a plaque at the entrance of China's official Xinhua News Agency's bureau in Kabul, Afghanistan. 

A short bio on the Princeton in Asia website said Wang had been a fellow in Hong Kong in 2008-2009, had completed a bachelor's degree in South Asian studies at the University of Washington and did Russian and Eurasian studies at Harvard. 

"For better or worse, he still can't tell you what exactly he has been studying in the many years that have passed,'' the site said. "What he does know is that his dream is to walk the ancient Silk Road from Xi'an to Rome one day.''-AP
