SICB2019 was in Tampa this year, and I was there with Kevin and my lab mates Maddie and Meghan. I presented a poster and got great feedback, met some amazing scientists, and got to spend time with the people I find inspiring. I'm back with lots of new ideas, excited to work, and utterly exhausted!
Highlights were a lunch session run by Eliza VanCort on deliberate communication, and a lunch workshop run by Danielle Lee and Elizabeth Congdon about engagement of diverse student bodies via course design. And the talk on fire ant rafts behaving as a gel.
