So, yeah, I haven't posted here in more than a year. Within that time I completed and defended my Ph.D. dissertation and now have those little letters after my name. Life just seemed to get busier, of course. As I was nearing the end my dissertation work I started on a new project with my US Forest Service collaborator (and with a number of Canadian Forest Service collaborators), with whom I'm now working in my post-doctoral time. I haven't moved from UW-Madison yet, but I can't quite tell what the future holds in that regard. I'm still working out some of the products of my dissertation research, a lot of modeling results that I haven't analyzed yet. My work on climatology and phenology made it into my dissertation, but my intended work on forest disturbances did not. I'm still interested in it, though. So I have publications to write and data to analyze and presentations to make and a new project to work on and proposals for yet more analyses in new locations and yet more ideas of my own, not to mention looking for a permanent research position somewhere that will suit my interests and skills. Your suggestions and contacts are all welcome!
This will be my last post here. I'll leave the blog up for another month or so, then remove it. You can keep up with my work and keep in touch with me through my new professional website, matthewgarcia.tech!
