Beginning of the Summer, Travel, etc.

Well folks, it's been and continues to be a very busy period in my life! The semester is ending. I traveled a whole lot this past year. I'm going to India, again! And the summer is beginning. So let me just bring you all up to date.

The short story is, I am going to Bangalore, India, and I am leaving tomorrow. I'm going to work on a project at Microsoft Research, India that's related to my thesis, but also related to work they do there, so it's a good match. Some of you may know that I was there back in 2007, and had an awesome time. Well I am pumped to be going back. I'll be working with the same person, Aditya Nori, and to a lesser extent with Sriram Rajamani, who is on my thesis committee. This is going to be a more concentrated research trip, since I'll only be there for May, and we have a project to start and finish, but I'll still have some time to be a tourist.

When I get back, I have a bunch of research to get to in my final push to be doctored on. I'll be glad to be back in Pittsburgh for an extended time. I love graduate school, and I love all the great travel opportunities it has provided me with, but I also love my friends in Pittsburgh, and it'll be nice to be here for the summer.

If this post seems a little frantic, it's because I am frantically getting ready! Am I packed? Of course not! But I'll figure something out...
