Weekly update 16

Post date: Apr 25, 2014 2:27:20 PM

The last week of classes, which ostensibly means nothing to me since I dont take classes, was chock full of things to attend. I saw my lab mate, Nate Sutton, present his Master's research. He successfully defended! I saw Ivan Juric (ee-vahn uur-ich) present his PhD research, and he successfully defended! I saw part of Dylan Storey's dissertation presentation, and he successfully defended! I met Adam Willcox who works on human dimensions of conservation/environment: some cool stuff! And later today I will hear about Vicken Hillis's research ideas in lab meeting, and possibly Ernest Moniz who is Obama's current Energy Secretary.

On top of that, I've been doing some coding to get my part of the GIS tool up to date with the user interface stuff that Cadmus has been working on. Crossing my fingers that in the next couple of weeks I can start doing some analyses with this puppy.
