This is the way the summer ends. Not with a bang, but with a whimper?
Anywho, I have made enough progress on two of my projects over the summer that I feel confident in presenting them this fall. I will present a presentation and a poster at the Fall meeting of the Cincinnati/Dayton chapter of INFORMS on August 29th. My presentation is titled “Incentive-Compatible Multi-level Triage in Emergency Medical Services” and my poster is titled “Using Past Scores and Regularization to Create a Winning NFL Betting Model“. Both are in the initial stages of being written into paper form. I was hoping to have the papers written before summer ended, but it didn’t happen.
Things that did happen over the summer: Maria and I got engaged in Colorado. We moved from our condo on the south side of Bloomington to a townhome on the northwest side (basically Ellettsville). We spent a lot of time packing at the old place and unpacking at the new place. We took a weeklong vacation with my mom and sister to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I experimented with working at home, but found that I should probably go into the office almost every day in the future.
