The most recent scientific output from our research group was embodied in Dr. Ali Khoshkhoo who was officially “hooded” at the commencement exercises at Auburn University on August 4th, 2018. I had the honor to walk him across and put on his doctoral hood with the Auburn orange and blue colors. Dr. Khoshkhoo had the luxury of taking his sweet time to mull over multiple academic offers to finally decide to go north!. Notwithstanding copious amounts of snow, he will be joining The State University of New York (SUNY) Binghamton as a tenure-track assistant professor this September. He would be very happy if you visit his new website. On our end, this continues our perfect record of placing every single doctoral student from our research group in academic positions.
