Dr. Kang successfully defends Ph.D. thesis, consumes large rack of ribs
Submitted on Jun 12, 2015

Charles Kang of the EAO group successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis entitled "Computational optimization of design and variable operation of a CO2-capture-enabled coal-natural-gas power station". At our graduation celebration, he then successfully consumed a full rack of "victory ribs" (with help from his fellow grad students and his advisor). Congratulations Dr. Kang!
