Contratulations to Lestrange, Goings, and Lingerfelt!

Three graduate students recently defended and have earned their PhDs. Congratulations to Patrick Lestrange, Joshua Goings, and David Lingerfelt. All three began their graduate careers in 2012 and have worked closely together for the last ~5 years. It’s sad to see them go, but we wish them all the best.
