Congratulations to Hanspeter Pfister

Despite our really very good track record for the last decade or so, there are some people out there who remain under the misimpression that it's impossible to get tenure at Harvard.

So I'm very happy to announce that Hanspeter Pfister has achieved the impossible, and is now a tenured Harvard Professor. 

Hanspeter works in graphics and visualization, doing the usual sort of things like replacing your face in videos and designing 3-d printers that work like a Star Trek replicator.  But he has also developed a large number of collaborations with domain scientists, finding interesting and important visualization problems in things like diagnosing heart disease and mapping the brain.

We're all happy he'll be staying around.  Hooray for Hanspeter!
