The prize recompenses the best thesis work at Peking University, China’s top university, making it an exceptional achievement. Cheng Feng defended his thesis in Beijing before defending it in Rennes on 25th May 2016.

His work, entitled Relations érosion – sédimentation entre le bassin du Qaidam (Tibet) et les chaînes associées, was supervised by Marc Jolivet, CNRS research director at the OSUR (Scientific Observatory of Rennes) Geosciences laboratory.

Cheng Feng came to France in the framework of the programme Egide Cai Yuanpei working on a project within the International Associated Laboratory (LIA) Saladyn backed by the CNRS and Université de Rennes 1.
