Fall semester is here! We all hoped that the pandemic would have taken a back seat by now, but, given the circumstances, most of our work will continue to be virtual through 2021. The pandemic has been both disruptive and trying, and I know many of us have faced real personal costs. Even so, we should celebrate what we have accomplished – and the work we continue to do – together. There is a lot to celebrate.
As we start the new academic year, we are rolling out an annual report for 2020. Please check it out and share the link when there’s an opportunity to introduce people to the breadth and quality of our work.
The department continues to produce a mountain of peer-reviewed publications on a wide range of topics, and – something I think we should be especially proud of – our trainees are earning significant recognition. We also have a booster crop of exciting new graduate students starting this fall.
