I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Dartmouth and U. Oregon. I previously received my PhD and M.S. from Caltech and my B.S. from Indiana University. I try to maintain some hobbies outside of work.
Prior to grad school, I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail:
108 Days, 2192 Miles, May-August 2015
Trail name “Icarus”
I’ve been painting for a few years now. I’m not very good at it but that’s not really the point.
I’m better at graphic/poster design. See (Almost) All the Rocks above.
I have written a couple thousand pages of short fiction (mostly short stories and novellas). I mostly write for myself and have no interest in publishing.
Anton Chekhov is my favorite author.
