This is a personal, academic website run by me (Caleb Griffin). I use it to record my work, my thoughts, and anything else I see fit.

A little bit about me: I am a PhD candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I study political science. I share my life with my talented, smart wife and our cute little daughter. In my personal life I enjoy playing basketball, pessimistically following the Jazz and Springboks, and reading way too much science fiction and fantasy.
