This year’s class of PhD students had a time-to-degree of 4.86 years – an amazing number, given the amount of time spent in the field! Moreover, each student is on their way to successful careers, some in tenure track positions, some in postdoctoral research positions, and some into industry. We wish them all the best, and look forward to their speedy return.
