Dr. Kun Chen
As many of you already know, our beloved colleague, professor, and dearest friend, Dr. Kun Chen passed away on October 13, 2015, after two years of fighting a late-stage cancer. Dr. Chen was a rising scholar and a bright star in the department. Though her time with us was short, she made a long lasting impact on the department and especially on her students. She was an excellent teacher, an engaged mentor, a great colleague, and most of all, a very intelligent, sincere, and caring person.
