William Arko visit the group

William visited the group on Jan 3-5. William met us at a workshop organized by Lancaster University, in Accra, Ghana in last March. He then decided to pursue his PhD degree in our group. William has been a technical officer in the Water Research Institute (WRI) of Commonwealth Science and Industry Research (CSIR) of Ghana (加纳). He was successfully enrolled in China Geosciences University at Wuhan, with the help from Professor Qi Shihua(祁士华). He will spend his first year in Wuhan for classes, then join us in Guangzhou for research. On this visit, he gave a talk introducing himself on group meeting on Jan 4th. In the meantime, we had time to gather at night of the 3rd for a beer on the waterfront of the Pearl River, and the 4th at Hutaoli (胡桃里)pub. Willaim will go back to Ghana for sampling in the coming winter holiday.

Kobara visit the group

Dr Yuso Kobara(小原裕三)from National Institute of Agricultural Science and Technology (NIAST) visited our group on Oct 25. He had more than 15 years collaboration history with us, from the very first Asian PAS campaign. He first met Gan in Lancaster during his 2-day visit in 2004. Gan visited NIAST in 2005. Kobara visited GIG in 2006. We published several nice papers together. Kobara occasionally visited Shenzhen for an agricultural drone workshop by Dji Co (大疆), right after receiving our request for cooperation in another round of PAS campaign. It is a little world!
