Below, I describe the Project Overview, my Research Description, my Research Progress, and will eventually post my Final Presentation and Final Report.  I post my homework assignments from our weekly REU scientific Ethics class, taught by Prof. Bruce Glymour , and my reaction to Prof. Larry Weaver's Lectures.   Scroll all the way down to learn more About Me.  Finally, I've included some Useful Links.  Here’s a page of my photos.  See my new bookmark. 

Project Overview:  This is 1-2 paragraphs suitable for a congressperson

Research Description:  Please make this accessible to a prospective REU student, and to a graduate student in your area of research.  Length and level of detail are largely up to you.  Check with your advisor before posting any new data or giving away any patentable intellectual property.   This can be a detailed description of your approach to your research, in step-by-step style, or a final report type review of your activities and findings.  

Research Progress:  I have made great progress!  Here are some of my most recent findings.
