Married up, scientifically.

My Father-in-law was acknowledged (in a slide, with a picture) during one of the Nobel prize lectures this year.

This is exciting, as you can imagine. It also shows the familial expectations on my husband.

Research presentations

My two research students from the summer are prepping for their required research presentations. I am so excited for them. One is more engaged that the other, but they are both doing well. During a discussion with the more engaged one, we looked hard at the data and came up with an alternative interpretation of the data. Though the idea was mine primarily, it was a very fruitful discussion. I am very proud of her and convinced that a REAL research project is what takes the brightest students to their max.
