MGU 2018

Yesterday was our annual interdepartmental conference (with the climate and chemistry folks), so I presented some early work for the project I’ll hopefully get wrapped up over this summer and present at GSA this year. It’s always a nice chance to get to talk to your friends about their work in more detail than, “Oh yeah, I know he works with fish over in paleontology” or “She works with… organic things.” In these mostly informal, but still slightly formal, settings, you get to ask your colleagues questions and see what makes them really tick. Watching your friends get excited about their work, and happy to share it with you, is just… fun. And hey, you might even learn something. (I learned that there is a fish species that can breathe air and survive outside water for periods of time! Who knew!)
