Congratulations to Dr. Laura Finch, who successfully defended her dissertation!

Last Thursday, our wonderful grad student Laura officially became Dr. Laura Finch! She successfully defended her dissertation on comfort eating, earning her Ph.D.

Here’s what she had to say: “It was exciting to finally share the results of my dissertation with my committee members! They each gave insightful feedback that I can incorporate before submitting these studies for publication. I’m also glad that I got to share the results with the DiSH lab—including some of the many research assistants who worked tirelessly to make these studies happen. It’s a great feeling to see the fruits of your labor! Congratulations to Angela for her defense and all the best to Jenna for her upcoming defense this week!”

This is a huge milestone in Dr. Finch’s career, and we are all incredibly proud to call her one of our own! We wish her the best and can’t want to see what she does in the future. Congratulations again, Dr. Finch!
