Get To Know

In the spirit of getting to better know our fellow faculty and grad students, each month we will feature a new “Get to Know..” profile for one professor and one grad student. Check back here the first of every month to see who we pick and find out more about what interesting research they do and what some of their hobbies and interests are!

This Month's Profiles
