My office work involves conferences, symposia, and workshops for OES/IEEE; soliciting abstracts, reviewing them, organizing the meetings, and publishing the papers. I present about four papers a year on current measurments at these myself. I also continue to develop current measuring instrumentation and occasionally deploy my instruments for local water observations.
