Li was born in Taiyuan on Oct. 8, 1988. He started writing from childhood. He graduated from the University of Glasgow in the United Kingdom in June of 2010, majoring in sociology and political science. He is currently a member of the Chinese Writers Association, the Chinese Essayists Association, and the Shanxi Provincial Writers Association.

Li's representative literary works include the collected essays "Crazy Like A Virgin" and "Stinging Shakespeare's Dream" as well as the novels "The Case of Night", "Net for Catching" and "Human World's Barking."

Founded in 2009, the Charhar Institute is the country's non-governmental think tank on diplomacy and international relations, mainly focusing on the study of two major fields – public diplomacy and peace.

According to a person in charge, the Charhar Institute has engaged Li as its researcher because the young man "is full of artistic consciousness in his writing, can explore the relationship between humans and society from the perspective of understanding the nature of society, and at the same time has a unique and distinctive view in his articles about the issue of cultural communication between China and Western countries."

Therefore, Li Yudong is expected to exchange his own experiences with the Charhar Institute in promoting the cultural communication between China and the Western countries so as to explore a public diplomacy discourse style of Chinese characteristics which can be accepted by Western countries, according to the person in charge.
