Congratulations to Adam and Wilfred!

Adam has successfully defended his Ph.D and has graduated this past June! He will be leaving us to work in industry. Wilfred has also successfully defended his master’s thesis and graduated this past June as well! He will be leaving us to further his education in a purist of a Ph. D. Good luck gentlemen and best of luck in your future endeavors!

Congratulations Adam on Two New Publications!
