Congratulations to Dr. Maxwell Young who successfully defended his dissertation on Resource-Efficient Communication in the Presence of Adversaries at the University of Waterloo yesterday. Max got his Masters degree with me at UNM way back when I first started as a faculty member, and he was the very first student with whom I published a paper. He’s hard-working, talented, and also a lot of fun to work with. One of the great pleasures of academia is seeing student develop as researchers, and then have the possibility to continue to work with them as colleagues. Max and I have been actively working together for many years now, and I’m looking forward to visiting him in Singapore during his post doc with Seth Gilbert next year.
