News

For the first time in a month I stayed home this weekend and did nothing. Where nothing means grading finals and 51 miles and 12,000 feet of vertical gain, a bunch of it off-trail on Mt. Tam.

Also, I got a research fellowship from the Berkeley Institute for Data Science. Starting in the fall I'll be half time at BITSS and half time at BIDS (confusing, I know). I spent Thursday and Friday at a BIDS conference on reproducibility that was pretty interesting, and people were super nice, and they're all better programmers than me, so it'll be interesting see what I can bring to the table as a social scientist. Importantly, it looks like I'll be good to stay in Berkeley for two more years.
