Annual activity report: professorial-stream faculty
Faculty of Arts & Science
Period: 1 May 2009 to 30 April 2010
Dror Bar-Natan, Department of Mathematics
This is my "merit report", presented annually to my department (along with my CV), mostly to determine if I will be getting a pay raise, and how much.

Why make it public? So painful it is to write, I must try to sweeten the pill by adding to it some residual benefit. Hence it is also a "news report" presented annually in the open to the small number of people who might be interested in what I'm up to. The sectioning follows the standard Faculty of Arts & Science form, but with many parts suppressed.
