Jason becomes Dr. Cox!

December 8, 2023

Jason has defended last week and (of course) passed, making him Dr. Jason Cox! He already has a job lined up with Align Technology, the company behind Invisalign, and will be starting almost right away. He will very much be missed in the lab, but we wish him the best of luck in his new job and in everything else.  

Congratulations to Dr. Yihan Huang!

August 19, 2022

Yihan, who is co-advised by Jacque and Dr. Martin King in the College of Textiles, defended her dissertation yesterday and received an unconditional pass. We’re so proud!

OML is very proud to have had two of our amazing undergrads graduate last weekend.

Vince will be heading to Madison, Wisconsin, to be a technical solutions engineer at Epic Systems. He will be be working with clients to implement changes to improve Epic’s healthcare database software.

Jennifer is will be working as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) in the Raleigh area during her gap year and applying to medical schools for fall 2023. This summer she’s going to stick around the lab to help us out, so we’re relieved to not be losing her quite yet!
