Parfait Gasana, the co-recipient of the 2009 Odum Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Sociology at UNC, with his identical triplet brothers. They were the first known identical triplets born in Rwanda--and apparently doctors came from all over to have a look!

I was the discussant on a panel about educational attainment. One of the presenters was Silvia Giorguli, the former Vice-President of the Mexican Society of Demography. I first met Silvia and the Mexican Society of Demography meetings in Merida, Mexico, in October 2008.
I explained my poster to new people as well as to many old friends from Princeton who came by to say hello, like Monica Espinoza-Higgins. My friend Cris Beauchemin from the French National Institute for Demography (INED) also came by, and I was very happy to speak about demography in French for a while.
