Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone!

2014 was a really fantastic year full of adventure for me.

I switched jobs, started studying a new continent (!!), worked with a series of different researchers that I really admire and find myself learning a lot from, gave a talk at the TEDUniversity session at TEDGlobal in Rio, gave a different version of the talk at TEDxMunich in November, started learning to program in Python, returned to some of the data I was working with from international remittances transfers… and used my python codes to do cool things with it, returned to Mexico purely for fun instead of work (it has been a while), and started to be able to answer the question: What do you want from this one precious life?

I have a lot of things I want to work on and learn this year, but 2014 was a great start to this chapter of life. Thank you to everyone who offered me their time, thoughts, feedback and patience. Really excited to cross paths with all of you again soon.
