It’s been a great semester, once again. I’m grateful for all the work the students put in over this time, both in the research group and in my classes. Group members traveled all over the country to talk about our work: San Diego, Albuquerque, and Asheville. And we still have more travel planned for next semester and next year. I’m excited for what is in store for the next semester and going into the summer. With any luck, we’ll have some great results, great grades, and a lot of fun along the way!
