Unfortunately I have to cancel several research trips and conferences this spring and summer. I’ve recently come down with pneumonia (quite unexpectedly! with hospital stay and all) and full recovery is expected to take several months. I had planned to go to the Radio Habitability Conference in California and The X-ray Universe in Rome, for both of which I’m on the scientific organizing committee, but I won’t be able to go to those. I’ll also have to cancel several invited colloquium and seminar talks that I had been looking forward to. But health comes first.
