Summer 2022 is in full swing and I will be introducing our class members in posts in the coming weeks. We are in the middle of interesting research, we have taken some industry tours, we have enjoyed enriching talks at Hope College, we have been kayaking, volleyballing, ice cream eating and enjoying the summer. Also many thanks to Hope College for once again inviting us to present posters at their end-of-summer symposium. It was an excellent experience (as always!). We will soon be traveling to East Lansing to present at the MSU Mid-Sure poster symposium.
