I was pleased to participate on the first University of Reading Environmental Science undergraduate field class to Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology (NUIST), organised by my colleagues Steve Robinson and Hong Yang. A group of Reading third year students joined 36 Chinese students studying our Environmental Science programme at the Reading-NUIST Academy at NUIST for 10 days of activities. Further details about the field class and our partnership with NUIST can be found here.

My existing close links with NUIST started in 2011 and I regularly publish journal articles with my collaborator Professor Defu Xu. It was great to meet up with him and other colleagues again in China during the field class.
