Stephanie Rhodes joins LRRD.

Another eventful week at LRRD–we’re bringing our resident Emriver Em4 into being, adding some media yesterday and running water through it for the first time. We don’t yet have the articulated base; it’s being built in St. Louis.

But most importantly, Stephanie Rhodes began working for us today. She’s got the business and marketing experience we’ve been looking for and came very highly recommended from old coworkers and southern Illinois friends. She grew up on a farm south of Carbondale, left for the big time, learned things like international marketing, and as she says, “boomeranged” back.

We’re all very excited about her energy and expertise.

Cara and I are very busy working with collaborators at SIUC and elsewhere on an NSF proposal.
