I was originally going to talk about my thesis research and its new developments but instead, I decided to talk about my photography research. I met a lot of new faculty on campus I hadn't had a chance to work with yet. One in particular had a huge impact on me. Dr. Emmanuel Clottey. I found a cool link about him (link here). Feel free to check it out. Dr. Clottey is a fantastic person and a wonder to talk to and learn from. He inspires those around him and builds people up.
After I gave my talk Dr. Clottey reached out to me and complimented my work and suggested we talk about how it could go even further. I am proud to say that he has given my work new direction and I look forward to sharing that research and development with you here.
Keep checking in to see the progress. I am so excited, it is all I have been thinking about. Dr. Clottey mentioned he hoped that I would succeed and do great things. He hoped that by talking to me that I would find peace as well as excitement each morning I wake up with this new direction for my research and so far his hopes are coming true. I feel rejuvenated and excited to begin a new research project that is paired with my love of photography.
