Raphael is next. While he was having some technical difficulties, I asked Meghan about her research.
She looks at Uranium compounds that have a single electron in the 5f orbital. They are strongly correlated and apply to many systems. Such a sloshing back and forth of the initial trial wave function is a common problem. Maybe what we're presenting will help her!
Kieron indicates that I should go up to the front. Was Raphael in trouble? I took all the tech goodies I brought with me (laser pointer, Thunderport dongle, computer), but the session chair and Raphael just looked at me, confusingly. The screen finally showed Raphael's presentation and my work was finished. I took everything back to my seat.
