I was so busy catching up on classes I forgot it was April!
March Goals Recap
NSA went well! I’m happy with my poster, and I learned a lot about the field and hashed out some future directions for my projects. It was also really flattering that people thought I was a late-career Ph.D student (I’m not sure if they thought I just looked old or if my work was at that level, but I’d like to think it was the latter). I still haven’t touched either Pubathon paper in a while, nor have I thought about future experiments. But hey, that’s what monthly goals are for, right?
This month, I want to focus on my metaanalysis since I was so absorbed in the DNR project last quarter. I also need to think critically about the questions I want to address with the Manchester experiment.
