Food is such an integral part of the research process with Michele. She always makes sure the students are fed. Many of my fondest memories happened at restaurants in the district when we had visitors, meetings at Plato's, and in the department conference room with Seven Seas' dumplings. And I loved the parties at her house! Michele threw great parties. Everyone congregated in the kitchen and she piled food and drinks on us. Once, after Michele poured my wine glass to the brim multiple times, I somehow broke the glass on the kitchen floor (I honestly don't know why). It's this love for her students, as well as her love for food, for life, and for science that set her apart and anchored my time at Maryland. Michele's passion and dedication are energizing and contagious. It's something I have missed dearly.
