Senior environmental sciences major and Chinese minor Charles Cong Xu was recently accepted to the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Master Programme in Evolutionary Biology (MEME). MEME is a highly selective two-year research-oriented master’s program for students interested in studying evolution. He has also been nominated to receive a scholarship to attend MEME from the European Union and will hear the results in early May.
Xu been an active researcher throughout his undergraduate career. “My love for research was originally inspired by a graduate student in Professor David Lodge’s lab, Cameron Turner, who gave me my first taste of life as a scientist. We went out to sample water across the Great Lakes on multiple camping trips and I've been hooked ever since.”
