This time of the year is exceptionally hectic, with many things going on. NSF proposals, teaching, writing papers, running experiments, analyzing data…. All of this is great fun, but it can be overwhelming. Luckily, Thanksgiving is coming up and with it an opportunity to take a deep breath.

And while everybody is busy, Covid is launching the next wave. Here in Oklahoma, practically nobody out side of the university is wearing a mask; a decision that some will pay for dearly.

As the year winds down, I was thinking about publications and in 2021 we did well, despite the pandemic. See the list below! And the year is not quite over yet ;).
