One of my favorite people, and my PhD student, Amy McKay, defended her
thesis and did the walk of fame to get her degree.
Looks like Amy will be visiting at Iowa next year, and then on to great things!
Congratulations to Amy and her family. (Her mom was more than a little skeptical about the whole Libertarian thing, with me. She said, "I thought they were all nuts!" I said, "Well, what point are you trying to make?"
She said, "My daughter's dissertation adviser is a nut?"
Amy defended me, though: "Yes, mom, he is absolutely a nut. It's true."
