Since I'm on the subject of nerdy science dudes.
Check it out! In my area of study the Journal of the American Ceramic Society is the main journal we publish in. Well, since this is their 110th anniversary they got an evaluation team together and judged the 11 best papers ever written in the journal based on citations, science/creativity, impact in the field and impact out of the field.
My own advisor, Dr. Clarke, made it on the list! In fact, 3 of the 11 authors are here in the UCSB Materials Engineering department! The paper can be found here.
Even though we're moving away from this paradise city I'll still be with such an awesome advisor.
