Extracurricular activities

One of the perks of working with the REU program is the opportunity to work with the mentors. This is Steve Yanoviak, an expert on canopy ant communities, ten meters up in a Brosimum tree. And guess who took the picture, also ten meters up the tree? That's right, dear readers, it was me.

If I could start my PhD over again, I think I would do something that involved a lot of climbing.
