TITLE: They Say These Things Come in Threes... AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: July 14, 2009 10:28 AM DESC: ----- BODY: After writing that two UNI CS grads had recently defended their doctoral dissertations, I heard about the possibility of a third. Turns out it was more than a possibility... Last Friday, Chris Johnson defended and has since submitted the final version of his dissertation to the University of Tennessee. His work is in the area of scientific visualization, with a focus on computation-intensive simulations. For the last few years, Chris has been working out of Ames, Iowa, and we may be lucky enough to have him remain close by. The summer bonanza grows. Congratulations, Chris! -----
