I have been in University of Putra Malaysia (UPM) for research collaborations with my UPM friends.
Visiting this place is always a big fun for me both academically and personally!
I have been in Michigan State University as a VISTAS Fellow to facilitate research collaboration with MSU people. It’s a great research environment, and amazingly chilly!
I have been in the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) in Knoxville, Tennessee as short visiting scholar. Here I have been working Dr. Paul Armsworth and Dr. Cho Seong-Hoon about spatio-temporal issues of payment for ecosystem services (PES) in Southeast Asia. I will be here until September 17.
