Just in time to avoid delays due to childbirth, I've finished and submitted a new paper for publication: The KK-Monopole/NS5-Brane in Doubled Geometry. I'm excited about this work; it's the same topic that I presented on a couple of months ago at the Great Lakes Strings conference in Chicago. Since the title is once again largely jargon, I've written up a summary of what it's all about for non-specialists. To be honest, I have no idea how much sense that summary will make anyway, so let me know if you think it's unreadable. I hope you at least like the pretty pictures there!

[Oh, and I've also replaced my user icon with something that looks a little more obviously like strings: strings interacting with D2-branes, to be exact. It's one of my more popular string images out in the wild, and hey, it's pretty, too.]
