Congratulations to Dr. Yuning Shen for successfully defending his thesis on February 24, 2022! In his work, Yuning merged our experimental methods with statistical and computational tools he learned, including from co-advisor Professor Ambuj Singh, Dept. of Computer Science, at UCSB. The defense was virtual, but virtuosic! Fortunately, we were able to have a mini celebration a few weeks later outside. Best of luck to Yuning in his future research in Silicon Valley!
