Alumni

This page lists students, postdocs and others who have contributed to CLASS and moved onto other projects and careers. For these CLASS Alumni, we provide, when available, the next role they went on to play after CLASS. These roles span academia, industry, and government.

A major mission of CLASS is to train the next generation of scientists and engineers, and we are proud to have played a role in fostering the careers of these talented individuals.
