You Can't Keep Me Down Forever!

Yeah yeah - I know it's been awhile since I updated the ol' blog. All I can say is - it's been absolutely hectic over the past several months! Actually, 2009 has been busy busy busy! A quick update on some major happenings:

- The Health Information Privacy Laboratory has gone through some major changes over the past year. In chronological order:
- Late last year, Grigorios Loukides joined the lab from Cardiff University as a post-doctoral fellow!
- Next, in March of this year, Aris Gkoulalas-Divanis joined the lab from the University of Thessaly as another post-doctoral fellow
- Then, in June, Acar Tamersoy joined the lab from Sabanci University university to begin his doctoral studies.
- And, in the same month, John Paulett successfully defended his master's thesis, "A Framework for the Automatic Discovery of Policy from Healthcare Access Logs", and, sad to say, left Nashville to take up a software engineering position at Washington University in St. Louis.

Changes indeed!


Did you ever wonder how "Rachel Ray" rolls off your tongue like "Ritchie Rich"? Yep, I went there. No coffee for two days and counting!
