my conference week

Hi all! I haven’t been blogging as much recently, but I’m hoping to change that going forward.

A lot has been happening these past few weeks!

Most importantly, I presented two research projects at three different events this past week. Firstly, I was able to present my thesis research at the 2019 Georgetown University Round Table. I created a poster online through, which came out wonderfully.

Then, on April 5, I first gave a presentation about my DC metro research at the Association of American Georgraphers 2019 Annual Meeting. I last discussed this project almost exactly a year ago, so it was a little difficult to go back to it, but it was also nice to remind myself of such an interesting topic.

Lastly, I presented my thesis research once again, this time in the form of a presentation, at the formal Culture and Politics thesis defense. Although I wasn’t able to prepare as much as I might have liked, I still think I was able to explain my research pretty well! You can read more about this work on my research page.

In other news, Taylor and I are hard at work re: our new house! We’ve been to IKEA multiple times over the past several weeks to pick up new furniture and have almost finished assembling everything. Now, we just need a few more items. And of course, we need to start packing! We’re officially moving in less than three weeks.

Yesterday, in between assembling furniture, we took a break to explore Patterson Park amidst the blooming cherry and magnolia blossoms.

Plus, we got delish ice cream from Bmore Licks. All in all, it was the perfect day!
