When China met East Africa at F&ES:  Learning a Global Perspective on Research

During the Alumni TGIF (“Thank Goodness I’m a Forester” event at F&ES) last October, I shared with Gao, a Ph.D. candidate from China, my interest in learning about the environmental footprint of Chinese investments overseas. Despite my passion, I had little experience in the topic at the time and had no idea where to start looking for resources. Gao immediately introduced me to Dr. Helen Gichohi, the McCluskey Fellow at F&ES, at the Alumni Event.

Connecting F&ES to Mexican prospective students

Many memories came to mind as I was walking through ITESO’s student halls and its astonishing gardens.
