It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything here; the blog was on hold while I was finishing my PhD and on the academic job market. Now that things have settled down a bit I plan to get back to blogging.
For starters, here are a few of the major events that have happened in the meantime, that readers of this blog might care about:
- I successfully defended my PhD dissertation in October, officially graduated in December, and got an actual diploma in the mail a few weeks ago. I’ll be back in Philadelphia for the official graduation ceremony in May.
- I accepted a tenure-track position at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas, and will be moving there this summer.
- Dan Piponi and I had a paper accepted to MPC 2015. Here’s the github repo, and I plan to post a PDF copy here soon (once I get around to incorporating feedback from the reviewers). I look forward to seeing a bunch of folks (Volk?) in Königswinter this summer; I already have my plane tickets (CIU -> DTW -> AMS -> CGN, it’s a long story).
- Work on diagrams continues strong (no thanks to me!), and we are aiming for a big new release soon—I will certainly post about that here as well.
