A quick update: I have been "out of the loop" because I was working on my dissertation and getting ready for my defense. I successfully defended my dissertation on 2 November 2017! I will be receiving my doctorate officially on 15 December 2017. It's been quite a ride, and I have been blessed by the help and advice of so many friends and family, as well as my advisor and supervisory committee members.
In the mean time, I have also been working on some other research such as the bonefish and horseshoe crab modeling. Parts of my dissertation are also 'in the works' as publications. I will share all of this work as soon as it is ready to share, or becomes officially available.
I will spend the next few weeks updating my websites and adding information on the things I'm working on. Stay tuned!
