Congratulations to Alyssa Morey and Steve Kleinman! Both Alyssa and Steve defended their dissertations earlier this month, and both also now have completed their revisions. Within a few weeks they'll be sitting in Ohio Stadium, listening to President Obama (OSU's graduation speaker), and receiving their Ph.D.'s officially. After that, they're both off to assistant professor positions (Alyssa at the University at Albany [formerly known as SUNY-Albany] and Steve at Indiana University of Pennsylvania).
It's very hard work to earn a Ph.D., so they deserve our congratulations.
