I was given the opportunity to present an invited talk at #MMC2019 in the SPM of Soft and Biological Matter session. It was a great chance to catch up with the SPM community. It was also an opportunity to hear from some of the newer SPM family, Georgina Benn, Laia Pasquina Lemonche, and Vinny Verma, Alba Piacenti, Alexandru Moldovan, Casey Adam and Chris Evans, as well as those we know better, including Sonia Contera, Jamie Hobbs, Kislon Voitchovsky, Brian Rodriguez, Felix Rico, Sergi Garcia-Manyes and Cyrus Hirjibehedin, who was awarded the RMS SPM medal. There was also an excellent keynote talk on machine learning from Sergei Kalinin.
MMC2019 was a very proud moment for me, to watch my first PhD student Kavit Main, give an absolutely outstanding talk, the day after his graduation, and present an engaging clear, and stunning talk. Well done Kavit!
