It's been an incredible learning journey to apply new skills in MicroCT scan segmentation, and earning my name in a paper for the first time! Grateful to all the coauthors! This is the first diagnosis of cancer (osteosarcoma) in a dinosaur, a Centrosaurus fibula from Alberta!

Thankful to this unknown man for striking a pose and for not messing with my camera set up after he stumbled upon it. Also added, a bobcat using the log just a couple weeks prior.

Ya’ll thought we were done?! 🗣🗣🗣 We've shown you that Black scholars are out here and thriving. But we ALSO know that Black representation gets worse at every level, with abysmal percentages in faculty positions and leadership roles. Let's change that. ✊🏾🧠

Most apartments in Toronto are owned by multi-billion dollar corporations which enjoy profit margins of over 60% per year. Your landlords can totally afford to forgive the couple thousand that you owe them.
