We’re back (and better than ever)!

Sorry for the prolonged absence of updates. I took some time off over the holidays to spend with the family, and am still getting back into the swing of things. The honest truth is that as a result, there wasn’t much new to report. And then there was too much to report so I didn’t get a chance to post this blog even after writing it. That’s changed now, as I’m once again in full swing with the academic work.
