Personal Reflections on Making a Difference and When to Retire, presented by Alan Lando

Alan Lando will discuss some of the issues and challenges that he faces as he passes the traditional age of retirement. On one hand, he has unique opportunities for impact after 40 plus years in his field. On the other hand, his current passions do not necessarily reflect traditional academic priorities. The talk will focus on his journey and will include reflections on if and when to retire.
