Vigneshwar defends his thesis, becomes 3rd MSc of the group

Vigneshwar Kumaran Sudalayandi Rajeswari passed his thesis defense titled “Modeling of polymers with controlled degradation and first-principles virtual high-throughput screening” today. Once he has finished the revisions on his thesis he will be the 3rd MSc coming out of the group. Congrats, Vigneshwar! Vigneshwar will stay on with the group while he is planning and fleshing out his next career move, so it’s not quite time to say goodbye, yet.

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

Sykhere had his last day in the lab today.
