Memories of my Generous Thesis Adviser
When I was ready to write my thesis for CSP, I already knew that I wanted to ask Peggy to be my adviser. It was probably the best decision I ever made on my thesis. Peggy was supportive, attentive, patient, and re-assuring. One time, she insisted keeping a meeting with me, going out in gale-force wind and rain all the way to the coffee shop. And when the time came to defend my thesis, I was proud to notice the toughest questions came from Peggy.
