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.
