This blog collects all of my research on Dr. Devra Bogdanovich as well as becoming a way to tell her story. You can check the What is this page for an overview of the project, or browse through the Bio and Career pages to learn about Dr. Bogdanovich's work and life. The main part of the blog will serve as a journal of my journey to document my research and to pay homage to a distinguished scientist.

Recent – Published "Theoretical life" and will be leading a "prestigious public sector project"

At beginning of current year (school year or calendar year?) - took leave of absence from Stanford to work on government project (Niantic Project)

Date unknown - Lost Phone on train when traveling between Zurich and Geneva.  The phone was found and sold to Ben Jackson.  Ben Jackson posted the contents he found in the phone (https://plus.google.com/photos/100845558813143264405/albums/5776620572915738833).

Dec. 1, 2012 -  May have been killed with Roland Jarivs in Zurich.  A database file on Roland states they had traveled to Zurich Haupbanhof by rail on the evening of the event known as Epiphany Night.

this photo was found in the phone Devra had lost. This is close to where there was a report of two people killed, one may have been Devra.

Dec 1 - 2  - Devra meets with Dr. Christie Novosel in Zagreb and recruits him to her cause. She then begins to travel, encountering agent 855 and Hubert Farlowe at the Skocjan Caves, just outside of
Divaëa, Slovenia.

Dec 4, 2012 - her entry in the NIA Persons of Interest database was updated

Dec. 12, 2012 - Calvin (with the Niantic Project) confirms to Director Ni that the second body at Zurich is not Devra (as of the recording the body is unidentified) and that her and Jarvis's departure was not spontaneous but planned (with probably accomplice). They are searching for hits on Devra and have a kinetic team standing by if they find her. Phillips is the name of a person searching for Devra.

Dec 2012 - Feb 2013 - a writer comes forward with a Novel called Exotic Matter written in 2009 that seems to foretell the events of when Devra leaves Niantic.  So far the first three chapters have been released.

here is a timeline of the events mentioned in the novel (more to come on this later) - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hJdqI57OB7IaO59hiaKxt0ZlqpvLm5KxeUSz0Cqdoqo/edit
