Oregon Connection: I feel a strong connection to the state of Oregon. I moved here from the east coast to attend school, but I have since become rooted in Oregon. I have formed relationships with many wonderful friends, collaborators, and colleagues, and I have enjoyed - and been inspired by - the natural surroundings.
