Fall 2019 Graduation

We acknowledge the hard work of two recent Department of Astronomy PhD recipients here. David Lesser received his PhD in late summer 2019. He marched in the December 2019 graduation and was hooded by his advisor, Dr Chris Walker. Jianwei Lyu defended on December 18th, 2019, and will march and be hooded in the May 2020 graduation. Two photos of David from graduation can be seen HERE and HERE. Two photos from Jianwei's defense can be seen HERE and HERE.

Congratulations to both of you!
