Portrait of Chris Tatsch.

Why did you choose WVU?

It was Dr. Yu Gu. He had just won the space robotics challenge and he posted about what he was doing at WVU so that caught my attention. I contacted him and spoke in depth about the program and I decided to come here. I liked it so much I decided to stay for my PhD and it’s been good.
