In his presentation on Rwanda and Kenya Dr. Levine will provide a visual perspective on his visit to Rwanda, including treks to the amazing mountain gorillas in the Virunga Mountains, treks to the chimpanzees in Nyungwe National Park, as well as other scenes from around the country. In addition, he will provide slides from safaris in Kenya and Uganda. Dr. Levine is a frequent visitor to East Africa and will include commentaries on traveling and living in that region.
Dr. Barry Levine, Professor of Computer Science at San Francisco State University, has maintained a fascination with Africa, the wonderful people, the landscape and fantastic sites of the animals in their natural environment since he first set out to discover the continent by crossing the Sahara Desert overland many moons ago. Since then he has explored East Africa with frequent visits and safaris, participated in development and educational projects, along with enjoying many visits with his friends living there. He has worked on numerous projects in Africa, including the establishment of university programs in Kenya, the African Virtual University World Bank project (to establish universities throughout the continent to help bridge the digital divide) and served as a member of the Kenyan National Council of Science and Technology. He has also worked on projects in Armenia, Jordan, India and Peru.
