Congratulations, Dr. Su!

This week Julia Su successfully defended her thesis entitled "The Syntax of Functional Projections in the vP Periphery ". Her super committee of syntacticians consisted of Diane Massam (supervisor), Elizabeth Cowper, Susana Béjar, Alana Johns, Arsalan Kahnemuyipour, and Shigeru Miyagawa (MIT). Julia's defense marks the end of our summer defenses, but we look forward to many more in the coming year!

Congratulations to Julia and to all of our recent PhD graduates, and a thank you to all of our professors who have been patiently reading one thesis after the other during this very busy summer!
