Saying Thanks (but not goodbye) to My Electrical Engineering Family!

My graduation this week has been possible because of my EE family: compassionate professors, hard-working students, and supportive staff. I thank them all for the learning experience and companionship.

In Memory of Dr. John O’Brien, My Supervisor and Friend.

John, I know you worked very hard and handled so many things with your patience, insight and intelligence. Day and night, weekend and holidays – for the school and for us. You might be a little bit tired. It’s time to take a break, get some sleep, and rest in peace.
