Congratulations, Dr. Korsmeyer! I was a doctoral student at the University at Buffalo when she was my dissertation supervisor. I feel grateful for having worked under her guidance. She was an inspiring and supportive scholar-and-teacher whose style thoroughly combines empirical rigor and theoretical clarity. My heartfelt joy for her honor she well deserves!
