"Having a taste of research at Cornell, I got inspired and am determined to pursue my future research in US."
“Without the financial support of Overseas Research Fellowship (ORF) scheme, my summer might just be another ordinary one. My research project took place at Cornell University, a place which welcomes intellectual minds from all over the world to visit and exchange ideas.
I had a wonderful time at Cornell, where I accomplished a full-cycle research on the Mathieu equation and its extension to infinite fractafolds. Working with one of the best professors in fractal analysis and a bunch of dedicated teammates, I gained a precious research experience with the most rewarding outcome – having the chance to publish a journal paper on the project. I was also attracted by the peculiarity and inclusive research environment of the US, and am determined to pursue graduate studies there in the future. I believe this unique and authentic experience is very helpful for my application of graduate school, and I am honoured to be part of this fellowship.”
