Research at Fermilab Part 2

I am now finished with my research endeavor at Fermilab and have returned to campus for the semester.  I certainly learned a lot simply by osmosis from being surrounded by my collaborators.  Working remotely has been constructive, but moves much slower when one doesn’t have immediate access to helpful experts.
