Congratulations to Ramin Bostanabad, Youyi Bi, Jun Lu, Jian Xie, and Wenyu Han, who have completed their study at Northwestern and joined the alumni of IDEAL as of this summer!
Ramin and Youyi finished their terms as postdoctoral researchers at IDEAL. We had a summer party in June to celebrate together with lab alumni Dr. Xiaolin Li, who came back to Evanston for his Ph.D. hooding ceremony. Professor Cate Brinson of Duke University, co-adviser of Xiaolin, and some of her students also joined the party.
Ramin will work as an Assistant Professor at the University of California, Irvine, and Youyi accepted a faculty position at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China.
Wenyu, a Masters student, graduated in June.
Jun Lu and Jian Xie were predoctoral visiting students from China. Both of them joined IDEAL two years ago and they will return to China to finish their Ph.D. studies in September.
Congratulations to the new alumni. We wish them all the best!
