I presented some of my research findings at the Geological Society of America annual conference in Minnesota. This was a great chance to improve my public speaking in front of a large and well informed audience. Although I was a little nervous it went off without a hitch. Afterwards I was able to get feedback from the audience and even had the author of one of the papers I was referencing came up to tell me how excited he was that I was using his research.
Here is a link to a pdf of my presentation.
