SFSU [staggered] celebrations
Attended the masters thesis defense of Rebecca Stubbs on her Polemonium research at SFSU this week. One of the best presentations I have seen, and really stoked for her and Dr. Patterson and the whole grad group. Congratulations! Looking forward to the other upcoming defenses this semester [Jessica Peak, Eliza Shepard, Brennan Wenck-Riley], good luck to everybody in your preparations and graduation. It is really fantastic to see how amazing and productive everyone is there – wonderfully inspiring. They have all helped me learn a ton and persist, and I am really thankful for their support and advice over the years.
