Talks and publications
(March 2014 note: This is woefully out of date now after 3 years of graduate school and nonstop writing/teaching/publishing. If you’d like an updated copy, contact me and it’ll nudge me to update my CV and send it to you, and enough nudges of that sort should prompt me to update this page. Go go gadget policy of painful honesty.)
