I’m Bingxin Wang and I’m from a small city Anyang, the old capital of Shang Dynasty, China. When I was a little girl, my parents used to take me to visit zoos in my hometown. I was attracted by different kinds of animals. Maybe it is the reason why I chose to study wildlife and nature reserve management (wetland science) as my major. I graduated from Northeast Forestry University in 2015 and got my Bachelor degree and now I am a postgraduate student from University of Chinese Academy of Science, majoring in ecology. In 2014, I studied as an exchange student in National Dong Hwa University and took part in the ecological field research in the Fuxing Ecological Community, in Taiwan.
I’m really crazy about the field survey and I expect that the diploma course will help me a lot in improving my research skills and methods and having a better understanding about wildlife management and conservation in the future.
Update September 2019
Bingxin has just started her PhD which is a collaboration between the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and Wageningen University. She will mostly be working on insect ecology, but noted that her research will involve the species distribution models she learnt on the Diploma!
