During our mandatory reading hour, the Labs learned Lugwiler’s Dismal Itch – a very powerful effectuant spell useful in many situations. Next time we will do Spatial Transposition and Forlorn Encystment after that. Find Evan.
The cryptic puzzle Evan drew on the board was instrumental in conveying the essence of his research to the audience. Superbly done, Evan!
In case you wonder where we draw inspiration for our research. A case study: Karen Tonsfeldt and Evan Anderson.
Before we start—another level to the cryptic puzzle game “Find Evan”. Find Evan!
Now further complicated with an additional challenge: find Karen!

Find Evan (+5 pts). Find Karen (+10 pts).
Proud Elena next to Evan and Evan’s bass after the venue.
Karen and Evan. Thank you for the amazing performance!
The Slav and Elena Labs at Yale are very fortunate to have most hard-working, most talented and multi-tasking postdocs and graduate students. Join us!
Slav, Elena, Lydia and Evan volunteered to host science-hungry kids at the Yale Pathways to Science orientation session. We met wonderful people and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We also took a few pictures so that we now can play a very interesting intellectual game—find Evan.
The game is essentially a cryptic puzzle. It stimulates cognitive arousal, potentiates watchfulness and wariness, and battles ignorance and neglect. The game can be played individually, or by two people against one another, or even by teams. Here it is.
Level 0 (practice): Where is Evan? Hint: Evan is not Elena or Lydia.
Level 1: Beginner. Where is Evan?
Level 2: Intermediate. Where is Evan?
Level 3: Insane. Where is Evan?
We play only the best games.
