  • Congratulations to Miranda Marvel for successfully defending her dissertation!
    ---
    "My advice to incoming graduate students is to not limit yourself and don’t be afraid to ask for help. There is always someone who will be willing to help you overcome any obstacles you face and talking with new people can pave the way for new collaborations in the future. Also, it’s easy to persist at doing things we’re comfortable with, but I found the most rewarding experiences were when I stepped out of my comfort zone. As a student, the best way to learn is to experience new things and to sometimes make mistakes! "
