Spring semester is starting!

There has been much change since my last post, over a year ago…

The biggest change in my life is the birth of my second child.

He’s certainly a bundle of joy!

Unlike our daughter, who is very cautious, thinks deeply, and takes a while warming up to new faces, this baby seems very happy all the time, even with new faces.

It’s a bit challenging to manage time with a newborn, second grader, and a more-than-full-time job as a tenure-track junior faculty, but I am very very lucky to have my parents helping out with our two kids. Very grateful indeed!

Good luck to all academics, faculty and students, starting a new semester!
