It is not uncommon for our doctoral graduates to go on to exceptional careers in academia, government, non-profits and beyond. Some of them, like David Shi don't wait. Early in June 2023 David Shi accepted a position as Senior Research Associate of the Public Policy and Research Institute (PPRI) of Texas A&M.

Along with Kyung Ha Oh (see earlier story), both Partom Juniult and Matthew Young successfully defended their dissertations and have completed their doctoral program.
Congratulations are due to Dr. Young and Dr. Juniult.
