Honoring Peter J. Delfyett, Jr. , University of Central Florida

Submitted by Michael Mielke

Professor Peter J. Delfyett, Jr. was my PhD adviser and is my great friend. He taught me many important professional lessons and set a very high bar for work ethic and research quality. He exemplifies the importance of not just doing great work, but of communicating the relevance of that work in a way that people just get. He also showed me how to be clever when the resources are not infinite. Mostly, I am grateful for his friendship and advice as I have navigated life and career.
