I did all my field research for my Master’s and a bit for my Ph.D. in the central Asian republic of Kyrgyzstan.  It’s a beautiful country in the Tian Shan mountains full of friendly people and amazing landscapes.  I probably spent the better part of a year working there over the course of seven field seasons.  Their passport visas look really cool too.  Here’s a small collection of the thousands of photographs I have of that country.

Please go to the geology gallery for images of Kyrgyzstan’s amazing geology.

Wait, where/ what is Kyrgyzstan?  I’ve been asked that on numerous occasions (including airports while flying to/ from field work).  Click here to link to the Wikipedia article.
