Ben had his viva at the end of last week, and performed exceptionally well! A perfect way to end his PhD, and a very good reason to end the week on a high note with cake, fizz and celebrations!Here Ben is celebrating with Simon Hall (internal examiner), Charl and Uwe Bunz (external examiner). More photos of the celebrations to follow! Well done Ben!
Carl had passed his viva today, and we can now finally call him Dr Hu! Well done Carl! His external examiner was Prof. Bo Laursen, from the University of Copenhagen, and internal was Dr George Whittell.
Esther successfully defended her MSc thesis earlier this week. She did a great job, and both the examiners (Dr George Whittell, as internal, and Dr Louis Adriaenssens from the University of Lincoln) were very impressed with her performance! With the viva behind her, Esther is ready to join the BCFN as PhD student in September.
Of course we celebrated afterwards! Well done Esther!
