It's been a while

I have had an amazing year so far. Since my last post, I finished up writing most of my dissertation and defended it. Then, I got an amazing job offer and accepted it, and graduated with my PhD in Plant Sciences from Oklahoma State University (I can hardly still believe it happened. Crazy!). Over the summer, I also attended the annual Botany conference in Ft. Worth, Texas and presented my research about Chthamalia and was awarded the Cooley Award (Which is even crazier!) by the American Society of Plant Taxonomists. Almost right after the meeting, I packed all my things up with the help of my Okie friends and Kevin, Mattie, Midas, and I moved from OK to PA (Which really is the craziest, because I was already extremely tired from everything else happening this year). We are all doing well acclimating to our new surroundings and are almost totally adjusted to new surroundings, new jobs, and new people. We have a ton to be thankful for!

Soon, I'll be posting updates about what sorts of research are happening here at Bucknell in the Martine lab, complete with lots of photos.
