Georgy Samsonidze
2001–2006 PhD student, MGM Group





When I first saw a poster of Millie at the Ioffe Institute — where she was elected an honorary fellow and where I was pursuing my undergraduate studies — I had no idea that I'd someday have the opportunity of working with her. I will be forever grateful to Millie for teaching me how to do research, for connecting me with great people around the world, and for making countless corrections to my papers. Millie was the best teacher and mentor I have ever known in my life, and I will always remember her spirit and the support she gave everyone.
