Pop quiz! One of the two students above is not an REU student. Which one?

This conference was a big networking opportunity for me. Several of the grad schools that I will be applying for are in Texas, so this was an ideal time to meet and greet with some profs and post docs from the schools. I was able to get some genuine feedback on my first presentation and some helpful pointers on getting into these grad school.
