The ways in which these initial applied efforts led to a long-term involvement in OBM research are described. The award winner also reflects on his goals for pursuing this line of research, his commitment to graduate training in OBM, and some of the lessons learned along the way. The talk concludes with a discussion of the award winner's vision of certain challenges and promises that lie ahead for the field of OBM.
