PhD viva success

I am very proud to say that as of last Wednesday the 14th, I have passed my PhD viva with quite minor corrections! I’ll be submitting the final document for approval shortly, before I leave Aberdeen, and the degree will be officially conferred in June 2019.

My internal examiner was Prof Pete Stollery and my external examiner was Prof Francis Pott, and it was an honor to get such extensive feedback from them on my work. I am a huge fan of Francis Pott’s choral music in particular, which has been performed extensively throughout the UK and elsewhere.

I forgot to take any photos whatsoever of that day, so here’s a photo of me and my supervisor Phillip Cooke taking a walk, in an attempt to stop my nerves. I’ll miss Phil very much!
