"Spending a good part of my life in Buffalo as PhD student always brings back good memories for me. There were many opportunities to study many fundamental problems, and this resulted in 10 first author and a total of 14 research papers, and a rock solid foundation for my future career. At UB I learned how to do fundamental research, and how that fundamental knowledge could be used to develop and design new processes and materials, and how to handle multiple problems at the same time. I also enjoyed my close relationships with all of faculty CBE members, staffs, and graduate students!"
