Luo Doctoral Hooding

Congratulations to Jie Luo on his doctoral hooding!  Dr. Luo defended his PhD dissertation in August and has been working since then for Rutherford + Chekene in San Francisco as a structural engineer.  He officially receives his PhD degree this month, and returned to campus for the inaugural Doctoral Hooding Ceremony organized by the Graduate College. At the ceremony, keynote speaker Prof. Andrew Alleyne  encouraged the PhD candidates to always remember that they are “awesome” and that the power of their great knowledge demands great responsibility to make a positive impact on the lives of others.  Excellent advice to send off Jie and the other new PhD graduates.  Best wishes to Jie in all his future endeavors!
