Peter Szolovits’ Students

 

I have had the privilege since 1974 of working with some of the world’s best students at MIT.  This listing, in chronological order and categorized by their educational level, shows their research theses, and in some cases links to the documents themselves. I have also hosted a few post-doctoral fellows and trainees in our biomedical informatics training program, and I list them even though they did not write theses under my supervision.  A number of students also worked on their research under the co-supervision of colleagues, in which case I have tried to list their co-supervisors.
