I have just arranged to join Shamil Sunyaev's lab for a rotation in January. In a few weeks I will have more information about what project I will be working on.
Relatedly: some of you may remember that last summer I spent some time trying to calculate my Erdös Number. I have finally come up with a number, which is 8. The path goes:
- Erik Zuiderweg
- Gerhard Wagner
- Eirik Flekkøy
- Gianni de Fabritiis
- Francesco Mainardi
- Hari Srivastava
- Joel Brenner
- Paul Erdös
Shamil Sunyaev, though, has an Erdös number of only 3, through Eugene Koonin and Lazlo Szekely. So if I publish with him, my Erdös number would be cut in half.
You know, one must be concerned about these things.
