Now that I’m over halfway through the SDM program, it’s definitely time for me to get beyond just thinking about thesis topics and actually hunting for a thesis advisor and doing some serious background reading. And thus I finally had a meeting today to get that going. And now I have a new pile of papers to hunt for, sit down and read through. It seems like the general idea is somewhat solid, though which is nice. The worry you always have is that what you’ve been thinking about is something where all the work has already been done. It certainly doesn’t look like that’s the case, so now onto the next set of reading for it.
