School is starting up, and I’m absolved of teaching duties for my first year as a prof. Very nice, but it is strange to see the trees turning towards fall without classes keeping me busy. I’m going to try to look over the shoulder of the new IHME students. They’re almost all taking an intro biostats course, which is stuff that I should know. I never took a class in it, so I suspect there are gaps in my knowledge… I don’t even know what I don’t know.
Meanwhile, in Colorado, Aaron Clauset is giving a class that I wish I had taken in grad school, Inference, Models and Simulation for Complex Systems. The reading list is full of things I like, so maybe I’ll pretend I’m still a student and read the ones I haven’t yet.
