From the Department of Squee

First, huge congratulations to the amazing Stuart Robbins, who kicked butt at his dissertation defense and is now… Dr. Robbins! YAY STUART!

In personal squee news, I just found out I won one of the department research awards! So I get money to go toward my BBCP project, which at this point I think will be going toward big girl scientist grain size analysis, which involves – rather than a microscope or screens – a very fun-sounding piece of equipment called the Mastersizer. (No, really.) YAY GRAIN SIZE!

And tomorrow is the Colorado State Science Fair, so I will be up in Fort Collins all day looking at the projects of budding young scientists. I even get to be the co-captain of the Earth Sciences junior division team. YAY SCIENCE!
