Difficult to update the webpage when you’re having the craziest / busiest / funnest (sp?) year of your life. Here are some of the many cool things I got into since my last update.
Attended another Ocean Memory workshop / meeting / get-together. I drove up with a new Ocean Memory friend, we surfed, we then picked up another friend (after her special birthday) and drove into the Santa Cruz mountains (where Djerassi is). I’m very lucky to be involved with these weird, wonderful, and crazy smart people. Next stop: Catalina Island (I’m organizing!)
I officiated a wedding in Pioneertown, CA.
Attended the Tropical Pacific Observing System 2020 planning workshop in Boulder, CO.
Attended the National Academies Keck Futures Initiative mid-grant meeting.
Also visited some friends at JCVI to talk about a new project. This will be some straight-up incredible stuff—if it works!
I received a mini-fellowship to learn about “paleo pCO2” methods. In my proposal, I asked to make some preliminary measurements of boron isotopes with my buddies James Rae and Will Gray in St. Andrew’s Scotland. We got some very interesting results and I also went surfing in the Atlantic.
Goldschmidt conference in Boston, MA. Very fun times.
Travel starts to slow down, but everything is now coming due (lots of job applications going out the door). Also gave a talk at USC.
Gave a talk at UW—the University of Washington. I had been waiting for this day for a long time. Gave the best talk of my life, had many great conversations, ate some good food, enjoyed some fall foliage… so many great friends.
