The American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting!

This has been a very busy year. Aside from getting a promotion here at UW-Madison (to Assistant Scientist), applying for tenure track positions, and writing truly insightful blog posts, I’ve been doing actual honest to goodness research.

It’s all paying off. At AGU I’m author or co-author on six posters or talks, which kind of blows my mind a bit. In Goring et al. (2014) we talk a bit about the lag between project inception and the first real burst of publications from interdisciplinary projects and this really hammers the point home. We’re on the third AGU cycle since PalEON really kicked off, and this year we’ve got lots of posters and presentations from PalEON-istas (here’s the complete list).  These are the talks and posters that I’m either author or co-author on.  Be sure to drop by and check them out!

Also, I’m around the whole week, so if you want to say hi, get in touch and let me know.
