Hello (Ni Hao)! My Name is David Farris.

The project that I had the pleasure to work on at NFU (Nanjing Forestry University) examined how bird populations were affected by different types of land use. I am currently working towards a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at the University of Connecticut. I also Description: Description: Description: Description: F:\2012-07-09 China Nanjing-Reu 2012\China Nanjing-Reu 2012 896.JPGcurrently work as an undergraduate lab assistant in an Evolutionary Development Lab. I am originally from Mount Vernon, New York (about 15 minutes away from NYC). I applied to this REU and was lucky enough to get accepted in the Spring of 2012 and go to China a second time (my first time was in 2010). I also will get the opportunity to study in South Africa in August 2012 for three weeks through the Natural Resources Dept. and Study Abroad Office at UCONN.  The REU through Alabama A&M, Nanjing Forestry University, and the National Science Foundation combines learning about new science skills and a chance to gain research experience with learning and living with a new culture, which is something I looked forward too. If you are interested in this REU (or any other international programs), remember to leave the stereotypes in the US, have fun, and get ready to learn about both research and culture.
