When I wrote that I frankly don't quite know what she is currently doing, I should have taken the time to go and check!

Once again, this is really as good as it gets.
Not only because of the great images and because it really motivates people to follow, and even participate in those research ventures; but above all, because I discern none of the ego, agendas and primadonna shenanigans I bemoan in so many others - and let there be no doubt that this is WAY more professional and WAY more appealing, too!
