Sykhere’s last day in the group as he leaves for Singapore

Sykhere had his last day in the lab today. Originally, the plan was that he would stay with the group beyond his LSAMP Summer Research Internship, but he had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a student exchange to Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, which he could not miss out on.
