The Times They Are A’Changin

September 19, 2013

It has been a while since I have checked in.

In the interim, lots has happened. The Hawaii collecting trip’s data were converted into a senior thesis and then into a publication that is coming out next month ( In addition, a photo that elizbeth submitted was chosen as the cover photo which will also hopefully generate a little more attention to the article.

I am also on “sabbatical”. I place that in quotes because I am also beginning my first semester as department chair at my institution. Things on my plate for the year are leading the department through a curricular revision while running two faculty searches (anyone know of a good vertebrate developmental biologist?). We have been doing undergraduate research in an unsustainable fashion (from a faculty workload perspective) for at least the past 13 years and we are going to try to fix that, among other things. It should be an interesting ride and I am going to endeavor to keep up with the blog as my new role might be of more interest to some people than my old role was.
