Gordon Wetzstein, one of our Ph.D students who graduated last November, has won the Alain Fournier Ph.D Thesis Award for the best dissertation in graphics from a Canadian university. Gordon did his Ph.D under the supervision of Wofgang Heidrich and he is now a postdoc at MIT Media Lab.
For the 3rd year in a row, one of our alumni has won the Alain Fournier Ph.D thesis award. It is also the 4th time overall that a UBC graduate has won this award in the 7 years it has existed.
Congratulations to Gordon!
