I was very fortunate to be an NSF Fellow in the 2015 EAPSI program and visit China for two months in the summer of 2015. This was an experience unlike any I have ever had and I conducted invaluable research. I was unable to access my website from China so I could not write about my experiences on this blog. But, I kept a good ol' handwritten journal and I am planning on posting some of my entries post-factum.
The fellowship I received supports collaboration between Chinese and American scientist and engineers, and I would be more than happy to answer any questions about my grant proposal, fellowship, and program. I am very grateful to the National Science Foundation, Ministry of Science and Technology of China, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and China Science and Technology Exchange center for this support. Additionally, I was hosted by Dr. Chun-Lei Xiang at the Kunming Institute of Botany and he arranged fieldwork, permits, and collaborations for me throughout China.
I have uploaded some of my photos from China under Fieldwork 2015 Photos - China!
