My Dissertation Defense

It’s been a quiet month on the blog. My absence has been due to the fact that I’ve been up to lots of different things, including:

Participating in the University of Michigan Preparing Future Faculty program (through which I was able to spend a fun morning at Eastern Michigan University being mentored by bioarchaeologist and forensic anthropologist Megan Moore):

Preparing Future Faculty

Becoming a Science Communication Fellow at the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History:

New Science Communication Fellows

Baking bread:

Doesn't the first stage of the braiding make this look like a squid?

and hanging out with dog buddies:

Goliath sees a squirrel

I also finally checked a minor, pesky task off of my To Do List:

I submitted my dissertation to my committee last Friday. I will officially defend one week from today, on Friday, June 03. If you are in the Ann Arbor area and have any interest in attending, you are welcome to attend – details are in the flyer below, and a pdf is available here. Until then, it’s back to radio silence on the blog. Wish me luck, everybody!
