China 1990-1991

China, 1990-1991

From August 1990 to August 1991, I lived in Nanjing, China, serving as an English teacher at Nanjing Agricultural University.  During that period, I took pictures of the university, Nanjing and the surrounding areas, started the first pizza restaurant in Nanjing with help from friends, and traveled extensively across China.

China, 1993-1996

From 1993 to 1996, I conducted postdoctoral research at two villages in Jiangsu, China.  I had an apartment in Beijing, at Beijing Agricultural University (now China Agricultural University), hosted by my advisor for the project, Prof. Cheng Xu.  However, I spent most of my time near Wuxi, Jiangsu, where most pictures of this set were taken, mostly in Xiejia Village of Wujin County or Zhangqing Village of Wuxi County. 

Nepal, July 1999

In the summer of 1999, I was invited to serve as an agroecology consultant for a cross-site meeting of an In Situ Agrobiodiversity Conservation project of the International Plant Genetic Resources Institute (IPGRI). As part of the meeting, we visited agricultural areas around Pokhara, and spent two days in Khatmandu.
