At any institution, space is limited. Ami Pedahzur, my graduate adviser, has been trying to get us some additional desk space for three years. The Government Department recently rewarded Ami's persistence with the allocation of a room--an usually narrow room, but still a room. It's a little messy right now, but once we get it cleaned out, it should serve as a good home base for the rest of my time as a graduate student. It's warm, dry, and has plenty of lighting. Writing is simple. It's requirements are few.
