Unbdoubtedly the best part of the job of being a professor is getting to work with students. That includes undergraduate, MS and PhD students. But because one spends so much time, working so closely, with PhD students, that bond is certainly the closest. Here are the graduated PhD students whose PhD committee's I've chaired or co-chaired, and the postdoctoral researchers I've also had the priviledge to work with (along with their initial, recent, or current position):
