My graduate students produced a magnificent final report to their client, the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk. It provides 16 innovative solutions to the challenges M.A.N. faces with the replacement of the MetroNorth Rail Road bridge that bisects their facilities.
And I have been elected to the consequential position of Moderator of UB’s University Senate for the 2018-2019 year. That’s going to be fun. Lastly, I have been awarded promotion to full professor, which is by no means an automatic evolution in a college professor’s career. It is gratifying to have one’s teaching, professional development, and service recognized in this way.
