Gaudeamus Igitur 2017!

A huge congratulations to Dan Bear and Tari Tan, who graduated with their PhDs this week. On top of all this, as the official DMS Class Day speaker Tari gave an amazing speech about learning to manage uncertainty (which is doubtless at the core of successful science). Dan is heading off in a few weeks to do a postdoc at Stanford with Dan Yamins in computational neuroscience, while Tari, as the inaugural DMS Teaching Fellow, is engineering the revamp of the neuroscience curriculum in the Program in Neuroscience before heading to Max Heiman's lab at HMS Genetics to do a postdoc. A huge congratulations to both!

Tari, with certainty, sharing her thoughts about uncertainty to the graduating class

The three wizards!
