Submitted by Prof. Nathaniel Kinsey, Virginia Commonwealth University

I'm eternally grateful for the amazing training, leadership, and unwavering support that Prof. Boltasseva provided me during my PhD. During this time she trained me in the field of optical materials and nanophotonics and provided countless opportunities for me to succeed both near and far. To me she is truly unique for her ability to strive for academic excellence without sacrificing the personal touch to students and colleagues. Thanks for everything! I'm proud to have been your student.
