We typically hire new students during the Fall and the Spring semester. However, we have made an exception this year, and hired a new student during the Summer term. The student is quite young but appears to be highly motivated – which is the key criteria for successful entry in our group.
The student will be initially mentored by a senior member of the group (who was also a summer recruit, a few years ago). An agreement has been made between the two for collaboration, and all concerned parties have kindly agreed.
The (tentative) thesis title for this new student is,
“Novel Mechanisms for Disrupting Parents’ Sleep during Nightime.”
Publications are on their way.
