It’s official. I successfully defended my dissertation today. The process was surprisingly enjoyable. After very little sleep, I still managed to give a good presentation and field a bunch of good questions. My committee was genuinely interested in my work and gave me lots of new ideas on where I can take the research.

I have some corrections to make in my thesis, but otherwise I can relax a little bit. I’m glad I’ll have a chance to write up some of my newest results and maybe get another paper out. That should make the transition to a new career at Pacific a little more productive. I’ll post once my thesis is finalized and available online.

  1. Congratulations! This is WAY cool. We’re looking forward to trying to read the dissertation.

    Now you can get some sleep.

  2. Congrats Andy! I know your parents are proud and thrilled you are moving closer to good ‘ol Moscow. Best wishes for a smooth trek this summer to OR.
