Autumn 2020 PSD Graduation

A Message from Dean Olinto

It is my great pleasure to congratulate the Autumn 2020 graduates of the Physical Sciences Division. This quarter’s graduates should take pride in all they have accomplished to reach this milestone. They have worked brilliantly to advance the fields of Astronomy & Astrophysics, Biophysical Sciences, Computational and Applied Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Financial Mathematics, Geophysical Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics.

Although current circumstances demand that we celebrate your accomplishments while physically distancing, we want to recognize your accomplishments both this quarter and at the Spring 2021 University-wide Convocation, to which you are all invited.

You have all grown as professionals and academics, created a support network of peers and mentors, and made meaningful contributions to your fields of study. We are so proud of you and look forward to celebrating with you in person when possible.
