Finally back from Detroit after what seems like forever. And of course I have a lot of stuff to do now that I am back. The conference was excellent. I had a great time catching up with friends I made last year and meeting new people. I feel refreshed and inspired, which is a place I need to be as I finish my proposal and start on chapters. This is from the award ceremony where Dr. Kalmbach won the Charles Moran award. I am so glad he received recognition for the kind of contribution and commitment he makes to the field, mentoring and supporting graduate students like me.
