So Long, and Thanks for All the Crawfish

After 19 years, I have closed the door to my LSU office for the last time. Time for new adventures at McMaster University.

Below is a photo of a last gathering (and first in a while) with group members a few weeks ago: from left to right Ph.D. student Jamal Shabani, Ph.D. student Nha Van Tran, myself, postdoc Frédéric Marazzato, and former undergraduate student Han-Hsuan (Michael) Wu.

Last café au lait and beignets.
