8: Karrie Gilbert (2008) | UCSC Thesis: The Global Properties and Substructure Characteristics of Andromeda's Stellar Halo (Raja GuhaThakurta) Current Location: Seattle, WA - Hubble Fellow at the University of Washington | "Sandy, I feel I was one of the lucky ones- I got to take your galaxies class my first quarter at UCSC. Although it felt like boot camp, the knowledge you passed on in class is still serving me well. Thanks for your dedication to the department and especially to the graduate students. Good luck in your next endeavors!"

9: Nicholas Konidaris (2008)

10: Gregory Novak (2008) | UCSC Thesis: Simulated Galaxy Remnants Produced by Binary and Multiple Mergers (Joel Primack) Current Location: Princeton, NJ - Postdoctoral Researcher and Teaching Fellow at Princeton | "I have been inspired by you over the years. Best wishes."

All the best!"

13: UCSC Thesis: Iron and Alpha Element Distributions in Milky Way Dwarf Satellite Galaxies from Medium-Resolution Spectroscopy (Raja GuhaThakurta) Current Location: Pasadena, CA - Hubble Fellow at Caltech | Evan Kirby (2009) | "At my dissertation defense, I asked Sandy, 'Did you ever expect DEIMOS to be able to pull out multi-element abundance measurements for individual stars?' She said, 'Of course!' I'm glad that I was able to help DEIMOS realize its full potential!"
