T&I Professor Laura Burian recently returned from the 3rd Strategic and Economic Dialogue between the US and China, as part of a MIIS team of interpreters for the U.S. Department of State. Most of the details of these events are not available to the public, but here is a snippet of video that the State Dept. posted on its web site.  If you look quickly (hint: keep your eyes on the upper right corner of the screen for the first few second) you will see Laura briefly,  but then will hear her interpret for a very important person.
