Last Tuesday I said that I would talk about science again. Well, I’m not. Sorry, I’m still swamped this week.
But what I can do is thank everyone that came to see my graduation from UMD, as well as everyone that sent their best wishes. Thank you very much. I enjoyed seeing everyone.
Here’s a picture from the event. If I look tired and sort of crazed, that’s because I was. Graduations are awkward. Plus those caps and gowns flatter no one. Continue reading
On Tuesdays, I normally write a post about evolution or science. Unfortunately, I’m swamped this week. My in-laws, parents, and sister are all visiting for my graduation from UMD. Consequently, my wife and I are cranking out lab-work right now so we can actually spend time with our families later. So no new post this week. I’ll pick it up again next week when I critique of my own recent paper in BMC Evolutionary Biology. Continue reading
This is a photo of Judy Wexler, a researcher with our cichlid genetics lab at UMD and an accomplished cyclist. She is now the world’s record holder for pilot of a human-powered helicopter. She is also the first female human-powered helicopter pilot. Congratulations Judy! Continue reading
In case you couldn’t tell from the title, this will be a blog about evolutionary biology, books, and cats. If you love/hate any of these things, get ready: things will get interesting.
My plan is to post a few times a week. At least once a week I plan to post a short blog about new research in evolutionary biology. These posts will be easy to read and are designed to bring the best of evolutionary biology to a general audience. So whether you already adore evolution or just want to know more, these posts should be helpful.
In addition to writing about evolutionary biology, I’ll also post what I am reading. Feel free to tell me these books are awful/great/whatever.
Finally, every Caturday I will post pictures of our cat overlords. A day is coming when cats will own us all. Might as well ingratiate yourselves now.
