Meetings

Attending academic conferences is one of my favorite annual activities. There’s something so exciting about several days of non-stop science, and I always try to share my work at these meetings. Below is a current list of the meetings I have attended, including my meeting presentations (many of which can be downloaded as a PDF) as well as blog posts inspired by the talks and posters of other scientists:
