I am a new Master's degree student with Mr. Randall Bonne. I come from China and got my undergraduate degree in Environmental Engineering from Southeast University, Nanjing. During my last five years, all what I have studied was how to make the environment better for us to live but recently I start to wonder is it allright for us to change the environment on purpose? I still haven't decided which project to study in but I am sure I am so interested in studies on the relationships between human and the natural world and ecosystem modeling. Since Mr. Boone has lots of interesting projects, soon I will have my study field decided.
