Congratulations to Brian and Evan!
Brian Machovina and Evan Rehm both successfully defended their dissertations earlier this spring.
Yesterday, Brian was awarded his doctorate diploma at the the FIU commencement ceremony (Evan is off in Saipan tracking birds). At the commencement ceremony, Brian was singled out and recognized by the FIU president, Mark Rosenberg, as a “Worlds Ahead” graduate. This recognition was in honor of Brian’s long and winding history at FIU (he has been with FIU for 25 of its 50 years!) and his extremely successful dissertation research. Way to be “World ahead” Brian!
All of us in the upwithclimate team are extremely proud of both Brian and Evan. We are sad that they will are leaving FIU but we look forward to ongoing collaborations with them in the future.
