The 2018 Joukowsky Family Foundation Outstanding Dissertation Awards go to Megan Cole, David Mittelman, Maria Hwang and Sameer Iyer as they receive their doctoral degrees from Brown University on May 27. The prizes recognize superior achievements in research by students completing the doctoral degree.
