  Yuliang’s passion and efforts in natural sciences won him offers to study at top universities around the world including Oxford University, Imperial College and Columbia University.

  “我想搬去一个地方,

  那里的河流不会散发臭味,

  我可以在干净的水里游泳。”

  这是孙语梁大二为课程作业拍摄视频时采访的一位小女孩说的, 这句话深深地印在他脑海里,甚至影响了他后来的课题和升学选择。

  中国的很多湖泊都在遭受人为干扰导致的水污染。作为环境科学专业的学生,我们会经常去实地考察和测量,每当看到水面上漂浮着厚厚的藻类或死鱼、管道里的废水直接排放到湖里,我都非常沮丧。

  这也是我把水资源作为科研实践的重心和毕业论文的主题的原因。

  不曾想到,自己对环境科学的关注和热情打动了多所名校,临近毕业时, 孙语梁收到了牛津大学、伦敦大学学院、帝国理工学院、哥伦比亚大学、卡耐基梅隆大学五所世界名校的录取通知书。

  

  用一篇很“水”的论文打动了名校

  为了能在水资源领域进行深入研究,大三暑假,孙语梁成功申请到了哈尔滨工业大学的城市水资源与水环境国家重点实验室的实验助理岗位。

  “我们通过Landsat卫星图像、地理空间技术对哈尔滨太平湖的水质进行监测,根据湖中不同地点的不同反射光谱,来判断该处水质的富营养化情况。”

  这项试点研究将大数据等新技术与水利资源工程相结合,让孙语梁大受启发,也为他的毕业论文提供了可靠的数据支持和实践资料。

  他在论文中详细地介绍了如何从目标湖的28个不同地点收集样本、如何识别样本中的沉积物和硅藻种类、如何在实验中对猜想进行证实或证伪、最终如何利用湖泊底栖硅藻的生物多样性来监测湖泊营养级别……

  “也许正是这篇详实的论文,最终打动了名校的专家学者,相信我有足够的学术能力和科研实践能力进行下一步的学习吧。”

  进行实地取样

  放弃牛津,主动走出舒适圈,

  探索更加适合自己的未来

  今天正好是孙语梁去哥伦比亚大学报到的日子。

  很多人对他的选择表示不解:大学期间在英诺待了两年,对英国的环境已经非常适应了,加上手握牛津这样的顶尖名校offer,一切看起来都那么完美,为什么不这样继续走下去呢?

  这个开朗的男生给出的回答是:

  △“我想主动走出自己的舒适区。”

  “选择美国的哥大,是有点大胆、但经过深思熟虑的结果。很多选择升学的宁诺学生都会选择英国,因为在课程体系等很多方面,宁诺与英国高校可以无缝衔接,下一阶段的学习中,我们能很快进入角色。

  但在我看来,美国环境科学领域的技术应用比较成熟,此外我也咨询了自己非常信赖的老师——曾在美国工作、生活过的地理科学助理教授何根根,他认为美国开放、活泼又不失严谨的学术氛围非常适合我。”

  选择美国,还与孙语梁另外一个研究兴趣——页岩气技术有关。

  “经历过2008年前后的页岩气革命,美国已经成为世界上唯一实现页岩气大规模商业性开采的国家,大大降低了对石油的依赖。

  中国的页岩气储量与美国相当,但富集区多在地质条件复杂的西南西北地区,埋藏深度也比美国深很多,开采难度很大。入学后,我想寻求学习双学位的机会,在能源技术,尤其是页岩气技术方面进行探究。

  希望有一天,我能为中国的页岩气技术做些什么 。”

  

  集学霸、模特、演员、篮球队长

  于一身的神仙小哥哥

  获得过校长奖学金和年度优秀学生奖学金的孙语梁在学习上很有自己的方法,

  “每次考试季我都会进行三轮复习:第一轮将课本和所有资料快速看一遍,把知识点挑出来、抄下来;第二轮复习重点,做以往考试的样卷和真题;第三轮查漏补缺。

  对考题进行预测也是一个很好的方法,把自己能想到的问题都提前准备好,会让人信心倍增。”

  虽然在学习上下了很大功夫,但孙语梁绝不会把所有的课余时间全部用来学习。由于个子高,他被校模特队和校电视台相中。

  参加Show night

  “为了更好的T台效果,在学姐学长的指导下努力改正驼背、调整手臂的摆动方式;为了扮演好死侍(漫威漫画中的角色),克服害羞和怯场、穿着惹眼的戏服在商场里进行影片拍摄,做着滑稽、夸张的动作……

  在宁诺的这些经历,对我来说都是独一无二的。

  去英诺后,热爱运动的他通过篮球和健身交到了许多朋友,还被推选为地理系篮球队队长。

  站在新旅程的出发点回首大学四年,孙语梁觉得自己在宁诺完成了蜕变,“很多同学像我一样,通过这四年完成了弯道超车。

  最后,我想跟学弟学妹分享的是, 珍惜和利用好宁诺给你的自由,没有人拿着教鞭时刻在你身旁,你要自己管好自己;但也正是这样,你才能成为自己想要成为的模样。

  For a better environment: UNNC student determined to start from himself

  “I would love to move to somewhere that is not stinky and has a river where I can swim, just like before,” a little girl, who had suffered from the construction for tourism in her hometown, told Yuliang during his course project interview two years ago. That impressed him and inspired him to concentrate in the field of water resources.

  “It was quite depressing to see a thick layer of algae and dead fish floating on the top of a lake as well as the wastewater directly discharged to it; there is also a large number of lakes suffering from anthropogenic disturbances throughout China. I strongly feel the responsibility to take care of it,” said Yuliang.

  In order to investigate water resources thoroughly, Yuliang did an internship at the State Key Laboratory of Urban Water Resource and Environment of Harbin Institute of Technology. “We adopted Landsat imagery and geospatial techniques to monitor the quality of water resources in Harbin, China, according to their different reflectance spectra,” said Yuliang. The research incorporating new technologies provided Yuliang a great enlightenment as well as substantial data support and practical methodologies for his dissertation. “Maybe it is this detailed paper that persuaded the scholars that I have sufficient academic and scientific research experience to further my study.”

  Having studied in UK for two years, Yuliang is perfectly used to the British education system, but Yuliang chose to start his new journey at Columbia University in the US. “Wanting to step out of the comfort zone”, Yuliang described his choice as “a determination under serious consideration and preparation”. “The mature application of the natural science technologies in the US is more attractive to me. My instructor at UNNC Dr. He, who had lived and worked in the US, gave me solid advice as well,” said Yuliang.

  As a winner of the President’s Scholarship and the Best Student of the Year Scholarship from the University of Nottingham, Yuliang shared his tips for study – “predicting and preparing for possible exam questions increase confidence greatly”.

  Besides, Yuliang also spent a great amount of time on extracurricular activities as a member of UNNC model team, captain of basketball team of School of Geography and producer of Nottingham University Television Station. “Everything here has been unique – overcoming timidity and stage fright, knowing people by playing basketball together, and making funny gestures in costumes at shopping malls,” Yuliang smiled while recalling his experience at UNNC.

  “One last thing I want to share with freshers is to value and enjoy the freedom of UNNC. Nobody here would be pushing and telling what you should do but yourself. But that’s how you can become who you want to be.”
