“ I was shocked when I heard the sad news and just couldn't believe……In July, I emailed Ali about teaching Ph.d seminars in our school. He replied a few days later saying that he would like to do it just as he has done for our students in the past years. He is a wonderful professor and an experienced advisor who always encourages and inspires students and colleagues. I also remember the talk we had during his visit in Shanghai last December and the greetings he sent to me and our students early this year when China went into lockdown.I feel so grateful when I think of all those moments.
Ali, May you rest in peace and you will be deeply missed by the Chinese team of GLOBE 2020 project and the students you have taught at Antai.
My sincere condolences to Ali's Family. ”
