Homewood Schools’ PhD Hooding Ceremony @ Homewood Campus
Mar 21 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

This event honors our students who have completed or are completing doctoral degrees from summer 2018 through spring 2019, and recognizes not only their years of hard work and creativity, but also the devoted advisers who mentored and inspired them.

During the ceremony, advisers will hood each student as a public symbol of the student’s imminent doctoral status. This formal ceremony, which also includes family members and friends, is an ideal way to acknowledge and honor the hard work of each student and adviser before students head out into the world.

Title: Think Bigger: Empower Yourself to Change the World

Abstract: During this talk, I will share some of my experiences and ultimately challenge the audience to place their research into a greater context. We must actively pursue ways to innovate by expanding our thinking about how we positively impact society. I will explore how a kid from East Baltimore grew up and developed the tools, skills, and abilities to thrive in a career where he currently leverages the best technology and expertise from around the globe in order to translate ideas into solutions that solve some of the world’s most complex problems.
