Honoring Kim Winick, University of Michigan

Submitted by Catalin Florea, Avo Photonics

I was fortunate to find the right person, Professor Kim Winick, in the right place, University of Michigan. Striking a great balance between pushing for results and allowing for quality growth, Kim was an ever calming presence that inspired through his own academic strengths. Based on the idea to only write papers that matter, I was given the freedom to learn and explore. Careers are made through hard work, as well as through receiving from those around us. Thank you, Kim, for your giving!
