Summer 2021:

Kudos to Shalu Suri!

“I wanted to give some kudos to Dr. Suri for her work leading a journal club for the REU students: Dr. Suri taught us REU students so much about reading research papers! She was patient with us when we didn't understand and helped us comprehend how scientific literature is analyzed. Every week in her journal club was a delight and I can't give her enough praise!" - Lin Ordelia

Kudos to Andrea, Erin, and Punya!

“Thank you for organizing another successful retreat!" - Krish Roy

Spring 2021:

Kudos to Lacey Yee!

“Lacey is a team player and an integral part of CMaT. From updating milestones, to project reports to helping with recruiting and running our summer programs, I’m not sure what we ever did without her! Thanks Lacey for always lending a helping hand and keeping us on track. We appreciate you!” - Erin Bryant

Kudos to Gilad Doron!

"Gilad Doron took the lead in developing CMaT's first eSOP using the Cytiva Chronicle system and developed training material for both CMaT and the MSC testbed. He was also integral in designing the CMaT data organization strategy for testbeds, projects, and labs within Chronicle, as well as exploring system behaviors and capabilities that are critica for CMaT. Finally, Gilad participated in multiple video conferences with other Testbeds as well as with Chronicle to share his knowledge and experience. Gilad has demonstrated exceptional citizenship in engaging in these activities, outside of his area of study, to support the CMaT computational infrastructure effort and the broader CMaT community." - Tony Pan

Kudos to Chaitanya Tondepu! 

"Chaitanya is always responsive and has a positive attitude. Chaitanya chips in wherever needed and thinks about all trainees when planning activities and events. Chaitanya represents CMaT and the entire body of CMaT trainees when talking to NSF and Industry and we are lucky to have Chaitanya on our team!" - Andrea Soyland
