I am on sabbatical August 2013-August 2014 at Queen's University Belfast (QUB), Northern Ireland. I'm a Visiting Research Fellow in the School of Geography, Archeology and Paleoecology at QUB. My sponsor at QUB (person who helped me become a QUB Visiting Research Fellow) is Dr Paula Reimer, a renown expert in carbon dating who recently won a Lyell Medal from the Geological Society. You can visit her webpage here: http://www.qub.ac.uk/schools/gap/Staff/AcademicStaff/ProfPaulaReimer/. This is my first sabbatical, and I'm going to use this blog as a way to keep track of what I experience professionally during this year abroad.
