I am a scientist!

Geosciences Since I finished my first year of grad school this month I feel a certain sense of accomplishment. This is me under the sign for our old building. My advisor (and therefore the whole team) moved from geosciences to political sciences, representing the culmination of a largely political battle about where climate science lives at Tech.

Most universities would have us in geosciences, but apparently Tech wants to do things a bit differently. Honestly, I'm cool with it. Part of me wants to scream, "I am a scientist!", but I think this will work out well. My Master's will be in Atmospheric Science (hard science) and my PhD will most likely be in Political Science (soft science). In this picture I'm actually looking out at Holden Hall, our new building.
