I’m very pleased to announce that Jason Crye will receive his PhD “hood” Thursday afternoon, May 9, at the University of Tennessee’s graduate hooding ceremony. As his major professor, I get the privilege of placing Jason’s hood on him, symbolically granting him the status of Doctor of Philosophy.
For those of you interested in the history and traditions of academic regalia, there is a nice summary on Wikipedia.
Dr. Crye’s dissertation is entitled Enrichment Determination of Uranium Metal in Shielded Configurations without Calibration Standards. You can read it here.
Jason is currently a full-time employee at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the Nuclear Security and Isotope Technology Division.
Jason also happens to be my first granted PhD!
