A screenshot from Sam‘s draft Chapter 2, typed with a fair amount of feeling I suspect:

Carbon conference!

25 02 2019

I’m pretty excited about this invitation. I can’t promise much of a talk, but I can offer a stirring rendition of ‘Diamonds are Forever‘.

Deadly need. And I mean DEADLY.

My H index went up!

It’s probably a bit sad how happy this makes me!

Graduation Day!

21 02 2019

While I enjoyed signs of spring in California, yesterday, my phone kept pinging: some serious graduating was happening in Guelph! Here are Misha, plus wife Gwen, newbie Oakland and brother Sam (top), and Aileen, Basma, Emma (in great shoes) and Tina’s student Lorrie (bottom). Congratulations everyone – so proud of you!






“Cat faces” resubmitted

18 02 2019

We got comments back from Animal Welfare on just before the Christmas break, and finally got our revisions back to the journal today.  One referee’s comments were niggly and hard to deal with (I think we did it though), while the other referee just loved the paper but only said this in one line (how about being a bit more fulsome Referee 2?!). But cautiously, I think we’re going to be OK at last! The survey was such a hit, and the results so cool, it would be so lovely to see this finally out!
