So I’m in a bit of a pickle here. I am currently working on a study with another graduate student, and we are writing up our results right now. The study is a mathematical analysis with large-scale biological implications. As we are writing it up, I am torn with a decision that happens at least… Continue reading On Choosing a Format

I have a new blog post up. It’s at a different blog I joined recently called EcoEvo Games. You can catch it here. It’s a bit dense so I might rewrite it for a general audience here. As well, it’s quite linked to my research (the timing of the paper was quite eerie in fact).… Continue reading New Blog Post
Best Discovery of My Life
So I was doing some population modelling when I discovered the best thing ever. Namely, popping is fundamental to the maintenance of an organism’s population. I shit you not. Edit: Pooping! Not popping!
I’m in my second year of graduate studies now. So far it’s not been bad; the material and classes are interesting, professors and comrades are nice, research is chugging along, I’m getting adequately funded, so no real major problems. Except for one. Graduate school is much different from undergraduate study. When a person is an… Continue reading Check Marks
ArcGIS — The Dumbest Program…Ever
My graduate studies involve a good deal of biogeography. I’m studying the patterns of two bird families which exist in the New World and the Old World separately. Therefore, as the New World and Old World are not exactly similar in size and shape, it would be useful to correct for these factors. So what… Continue reading ArcGIS — The Dumbest Program…Ever
