Well 2020 has taken about as many turns as could be expected, but that isn't restricted to me, the whole world has come to a screeching halt with the global coronavirus pandemic. After only about two months back at the Smithsonian we shifted to a telework only schedule. Despite the challenges we are all facing I am trying to stay positive, and busy. On April 6th Stella Yuan successfully defended her master's thesis, via Zoom! Below is a picture I took from my end of the Zoom presentation. Stella did an excellent job, which the entire committee agreed on, and we are now working on two publications to submit this spring/summer from that research! Great job Stella!
