reyesPULLMAN, Wash. – Doctoral candidate Julian Reyes was one of 18 scholars selected to be trained as a research ambassador for 2014-15 by the German Academic Exchange Service. He will promote research opportunities in Germany among colleagues and students at Washington State University.

Reyes studied in Germany as a Fulbright Scholar. He was selected to participate in an August seminar there about funding available to North American scientists and academics interested in conducting research in Germany or initiating collaborative projects with German colleagues.

His research involves eco-hydrologic modeling of nitrogen in grasslands and investigating the role of management and impacts of climate change. Learn more at http://hydro.cee.wsu.edu/people/julian.html.

Ambassadors help inspire others to conduct research in Germany by working within their respective departments and serving as a resource to university international, exchange and career development offices.
