Outside of this I've been making steady progress on a variety of projects from my PhD and postdoc, as well as grant applications and finalizing papers with my graduate student. 2021 is already turning out to be more optimistic than 2020 (not a hard bar to reach btw). I have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and am finishing up these long-overdue projects.
While the National Museum of Natural History remains closed, I really hope that in the coming months we will reopen our doors to the public, and more widely to staff. I miss coming in everyday, and look forward to spending a great deal of time in the collections. Until then I'm going to focus on writing and finishing papers, and hopefully getting some funding for additional projects.
