Best of 2016

In the past week, newspapers, television magazines, entertainment shows, and other media outlets have been reviewing the events of 2016 — the good, the bad, and the ugly. The home page for MIT is highlighting the “best” research of the past year. In that same vein, I would like to share my “Best of 2016”.
