New Ph.D. graduate, Jennifer Yonan, received the honorary "hooding" by Dr. Oswald Steward
An important part of the UCI graduation celebration is the “hooding” of new PhD recipients, and in June, Os was delighted to do the honors for Jennifer Yonan. It’s often amusing when the advisor doesn’t quite get the hood over the person’s head.
This year was especially nice because it is the first in-person graduation celebration UCI has held since the start of Covid. Jen will spend the summer completing papers for publication and will defend her dissertation in a public seminar at the start of the term in September.
