My son, Ben, successfully defended his dissertation this week. His dissertation has the catchy title of Using a Proxy-Oriented Genetic Algorithm to Find a Millisecond Scale Model of the Hippocampus. He is going to “walk the walk” May 20 at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
This means a lot to me. I plan to go for the ceremony which will involve changing some things on my calendar, trying to get someone to cover for me on a Saturday obligation, getting my son Darin to cat sit, and then driving up on a Saturday and back on Monday.
When some great event like this happens, priorities quickly shift. Somehow this is all going to work and I will be there for the hooding ceremony. I am so looking forward to it!
