Congratulations to Dr. John Stiller who succesfully defendend his PhD thesis today!

In the first Kern-lab Zoom defense, John gave an excellent talk entitled “Beyond the Ground State: High Energy Structural Determination”. After about an hour of behind-closed-doors interrogation by his thesis committee, we held a small virtual event to celebrate his accomplishments.

John will stay around for a bit longer in the Kern-lab and hopefully we will be able to organize an in-person, pre-pandemic-style party in the not too far future.

Cheers to Dr. Stiller!

The Brandeis University commencement on May 24th was certainly different than usual because of the pandemic… Nevertheless, we are proud of the accomplishments of the brand-new, Kern-lab graduates and hope to celebrate with them in person at a later time!

Congratulations to Klarissa Hollander who finished the BS/MS program (also for being elected to the Brandeis University chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society) and Liuyu Chen who obtained her Master degree.

On behalf of the Kern-lab-family: congratulations, enjoy a little break, and all the best on your next adventures!
