Show & Tell

Show us your publications. Tell us your stories.

Share a paper that you (or your advisor) authored or co-authored.  It can be something you are particularly proud of, or something you wished you'd done differently.

Whatever you pick, you MUST tell us an anecdote about the research process or publication experience related to the paper.
