I am in eastern West Virginia, continuing to distinguish between the vital and the urgent. I am spending most of my non-class time doing the following:
Working to extend the efforts of the Pulsar Search Collaboratory and the West Virginia Science Public Outreach Team
- Collaborating with external and internal partners to facilitate research opportunities as Shepherd's Director of Strategic Research Initiatives
- Donating my time, talent, and treasure as part of the Shepherd University Foundation
- Helping to advance scientific knowledge and promote scientific work as inspired by my prior service as President of the West Virginia Academy of Science
It is into these initiatives that I am currently dedicating the majority of my professional energies, although I always maintain flexibility as opportunities arise.
