Setting goals

Well, the new semester is about to start (how exciting). At the start of every semester, I set goals for what I want to accomplish before the semester ends. My goals for this semester are to submit a paper that I’ve been sitting on, and finish off a paper I’m currently in the process of writing. On top of that, I have two conferences to go to (SETAC and the UMass Sediments conference) where I am giving presentations. I also want to get down to Hopkins at some point, and we have an ABET visit to get through.

Oh, and let’s not forget I’m teaching 4 classes too. It’s time to get ready!

A New Year and Semester Begin

So here we are at the start of yet another new semester. New challenges lie ahead for students and faculty alike. I am excited to get this semester started, especially because I am looking forward to teaching Reliability, a Junior level class which has many students that I have had before as Freshman and Sophomores. Let’s see if they can step it up a notch. If you are in the other two classes I am teaching – I look forward to seeing you too.
