We celebrated the end of 2018 and beginning of 2019 with our annual get together. There was a Battle Ship and Mario Kart face-off between PhD students and postdoc and a 9 year old. Guess who won most of the time. There were also lots of food and a dessert bake off. Vicky Nguyen won with a almond cake, but Michelle Chen and Arina Korneva came in a very close second with a hazelnut cake and delicious brownie like cookies. Clearly everyone at the party was the winner because we all got to eat the desserts.
