Hal Frost, a colleague from our 2017 meeting in Boston, contacted us recently and sent us a CV of what he has been up to recently. His career is an example of several iterations of starts and stops, and he hopes it can be an inspiration to someone who faces a bump in the road. Comments, questions ?
and Hal's first-hand account of being an engineer and scientist with a disability
