(8) Steven Senger, Ph.D. (2011) wrote a thesis on sums-products in the discrete setting, orthogonal vectors related to coding theory in vector spaces over finite fields and sharpness examples pertaining to the Falconer distance problem in the continuous setting. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Delaware. Steve is now a tenure track Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Missouri State University.

(9) Le Anh Vinh, Ph.D. (2010) While Vinh was not technically my student, he got his Ph.D. in Harvard working mostly on his own on problems in geometric combinatorics in vector spaces over finite fields. I presented his thesis to the Harvard faculty prior to his graduation. Le Anh Vinh is a professor of mathematics in Hanoi.

(10) Krystal Taylor, Ph.D. (2012) has a thesis on applications of generalized Radon transforms in geometric measure theory, distribution of lattice points in convex domains and related problems. She was a postdoctoral researcher at the Technion in Haifa, Israel, and a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Applied Mathematics in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Krystal is now an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the Ohio State University.

(11) Essen Aksoy, Ph.D. (2014) wrote a thesis on geometric combinatorics in modules over Z_{p^l}. She is now a postdoctoral reseacher in Ankara.
