Seunghan Lee and Sara Masoud both found they loved teaching while earning their doctoral degrees in systems and industrial engineering at the University of Arizona. Now, after graduating in summer 2019, they’re both on to positions in academia – Masoud at Wayne State University in Detroit and Lee at the University at Buffalo.
“Sara and Seunghan have been truly outstanding PhD students, and I am sure both of them will continue their excellence and become stellar professors,” said their adviser, SIE department Head Young-Jun Son. “I feel fortunate to have had so many talented and dedicated students in my research group. It has been a lot of fun to work with them.”
Lee and Masoud come from a long line of SIE alumni who are now working in academia, including nearly a dozen since 2010.
