Ph.D. Alumni Spotlight: Where are They Now?

The FAU School of Public Administration is happy to report recent job news for two of its Ph.D. alumni. First up, Dr. Alexandru Roman – just five short years after graduation, Dr. Roman has been promoted to full Professor status at California State University San Bernardino (CSUSB), and it sounds like he is just getting started.

“I am happy and proud to be able to call CSUSB my academic home, and I very much look forward to continuing growing as a scholar here,” Roman said. “My professional achievements with CSUSB are, in many ways, a reflection of the guidance and rigorous preparation that I received at FAU during my Ph.D. program. The program’s amazing faculty, their supportive nature, and their high expectations have shaped my professional aspirations and have provide with the base that I needed to succeed in academia.”

Dr. Khi Thai, one of Roman’s professors in the FAU School of Public Administration, had a few words to say about his mentee’s fast-paced success.

“I am extremely happy to know that Dr. Alexandru Roman achieved Professor status so quickly at such a high-ranking university,” Thai said. “He has always been a very humble and pleasant person to work with.”

Next up, Dr. Gilvert Angervil has taken a job as Assistant Professor at Minnesota State University, Mankato, in their Urban and Regional Studies Institute and Department of Government.

“Before joining our Ph.D. program, Gilvert held some high government positions in Haiti, including Congressman in his country,” said Thai, who also served as Angervil’s dissertation chair.  “He is a very intelligent student and hardworking, and I believe strongly that Dr. Angervil will be successful in his profession.”
