I'm speaking on the keynote panel at the University of Michigan Interdisciplinary Conference on Poverty & Inequality this Friday at 3pm in 4154 LSA. The panel topic is "Poverty and Natural Disasters in the Developing World: Haiti and Beyond." I'll be speaking on what we can learn about disaster response from people who live in poverty. Hope to see some of you there!

Just when I left Michigan for New York. Hopefully another time. Good luck.

Thanks! I failed to mention the part where I feel like I'm going to be sick or that butterflies will fly out of my mouth every time I think about it. :)

That's great! Too bad I'm nowhere close to Michigan! I'd love to read some lecture notes or powerpoint slides if you are so inclined;)
