I am coauthoring several papers with another 3rd year PhD student Dan Acland. Dan, a British, is quite a bid older than I am, having run a small business of his own before coming to Berkeley. Despite being the eldest among the third year Dan is more cheerful and funny than you might have expected. He always has a small piece of toy plastic clay with him, drives a scooter, doesn’t eat (cane) sugar and prefer having ham and pickles in separate sandwiches.
(This is the highest quality image I have of Dan. This picture was from the last Skit Party of Berkeley’s economics department. Dan was colorfully dressed to mimic one of the faculty)
Tomorrow I’ll talk about what research I am working on (frustrating stuff).
