I have had the fantastic opportunity of being mentored by Professor Alexandra Boltasseva during my PhD program at Purdue University. I have found her to be very diligent, supportive, inspiring, and kind. The opportunities she has provided me has made tremendous impact in my academic and professional career. Professor Boltasseva has an exceptional ability to reach out to her students, and encourage them to be at their very best. She truly is an outstanding role model to young people.
