Dr. Iris

Iris Wang has successfully defended her doctoral dissertation. Congratulations to Iris on becoming a PhD! Excited for her next chapter as she begins working with Caesars Entertainment.

Dr. Nick

Congratulations to our own Nick Michalak on successfully defending his dissertation and earning his PhD! We wish him well and hope for big things as he moves into industry.


Congratulations to our lab manager, Spencer Dobbs, who has accepted a doctoral program position at the University of Denver next year! We will be sorry to see him go, but are thrilled he has received this opportunity.

Professor Ackerman will be on sabbatical during the Winter 2018 semester. He may (will!) be slower to respond to emails than usual during this time.

Spencer Dobbs will be joining the lab this summer as our new lab manager. Welcome Spencer! Our prior lab manager, Yuching, has moved on to a fantastic graduate program at UVA.
