Had a great time in New Orleans, LA for the 2017 SICB meeting, starting off with a memorable drive to visit my aunt in southern Alabama! It was surprisingly cold week in the American South (maybe San Diego is spoiling me?), but I bravely soldiered forth and enjoyed great talks and discussion about animal physiology.
Thank goodness I brought a scarf! #LFC
When scientists and pop culture fans meet… who’re ya gonna call?!
In an amazing coincidence, a Wizard World Comic Con was happening in the same convention center as SICB! I would have loved to get a photo with cosplayers but, in a hurry, I settled for this Ghostbusters truck parked along my walk.
In the last week, I’ve visited two cool environments: the tide pools at Bird Rock, La Jolla and Palomar Mountain! At the former, I got to see an octopus attempt to drag a GoPro into the rocky crevice it was inhabiting, and at the latter, I checked out the 200 inch Hale Telescope at CalTech’s Palomar Observatory. Exploring new research never fails to get me excited about science!
This octopus was quite intent on stealing a girl’s GoPro!

The page is under construction but I’m continuing to add content– I’ve got plenty of pics from past trips that need a home here! My updated curriculum vitae and publications are now available.
My New Year’s resolution was to make a website– something I’ve been putting off for a while. Here goes!
