Ok, so I am off to Israel today. I am part of a delegation of about 50 people that are traveling as part of the “Massachusetts Water Innovation Mission to Israel”. We will visit some of the water infrastructure and meet with professionals and academics. I hope to learn more about water resources in this stressed region, and also make some connections for future research collaborations. If you want to learn more about this trip, you can read this article in Xconomy: http://goo.gl/ahpCZ.
I also presented a research seminar at Geosyntec Consultants, an environmental engineering and science company: http://www.geosyntec.com/UI/Default.aspx
I gave an overview of my research program and talked about a recent project looking at intraspecific nutrient heterogeneity. You can get my slides from here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/81tv7ozuyu6a05x/oidkXVDlVg/2012/Geosyntec_Charles_Quota_Heterogeneity.pptx
