My classmates Wallace Derricotte (2nd year, Evangelista lab) and Austin Baker (1st year, Jui lab) featured. Wallace recently published his first paper here.
We all had a GREAT time at recruitment weekend! The biggest hit were our free lab swag -- cups, with a ridiculous pun! Kevin designed them (to no one's surprise who knows him). All my classmates wanted one -- and I have to admit -- I liked them WAY more than I thought I would!
After the poster session, there was dinner! Then drinks for whoever wanted them - either at a bar downtown or hot chocolate and marshmallows in front of a fire at the Emory Conference Center with pool.
I liked this sheet they gave the touring students this year.
Bowling event on Saturday! Great fun!
What's going on in my corner of the science world? Want to know what the heck I do in lab or wonder what the life of a grad student is like? Need Orgo tutoring notes? Then this is the blog for you! Also, check out my FAQ about grad life and the Salaita lab. Look here for fun facts about lab members.
Rolling Statuses: Technical journal blog. Here you may discover what the daily life of a grad student looks like: day-to-day snippets of life, clutter, rolling statuses and unimportant fluff.
Progress Updates: Will include entries with more meaningful science.
Weekly lab report: My write-ups on what I did each week (I posted these publicly during my rotation but not as much now. That may change.)
Here is a link to collected writing, poster and presentation tips.
As of February 8, 2014 I have officially joined the Salaita lab!! Very exciting. Stay tuned for updates. "Micro Min" category equates to grad school journaling; most of these have moved to my status updates blog under Home tab. See "progress updates" on this blog for more important news.
