My 2012 : Year Summary

My 2012 : Year SummarySo what did 2012 look like? to me this was a year focused around academia. After settling down into the PhD program and generally figuring out what my research directions are, my travels were mostly around the places where my academic journey has led me.

 

Since I’m always behind on my blogging – now more than ever – and the 2011 summary ended in November , I’ll start with wrap-ups of 2011 up to November 2012.

Overall 2012

Overall, this year I’ve been to China (Shanghai, Nanjing, Suzhou, Beijing, Shenzhen, Xiamen), Taiwan, Israel, United States (Chicago, Boston, Tallahassee, Gainesville, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Saint Augustine, Pensacola, NYC) and Puerto Rico. A relatively humble year compared to my 2011, 2010 and 2009, but it somehow still feels like I’m moving around all the time.

 

What else in 2012?
