Newly Minted Ph.D.s

October 1, 2016

The June 2016 commencement ceremonies of MIT-WHOI Joint Program included the recipient of the one-thousandth degree awarded since the program was launched in 1967. The milestone was marked by a cool, red-hot commemorative T-shirt (available at the WHOI Store). Receiving their Ph.D. degrees were, from left, Melissa Moulton, Mara Orescanin, Helen Feng, Bethanie Edwards, Harriet Alexander, Rene Boiteau, Rebecca Jackson, Sophia Merrifield, and Benjamin Linhoff.
