Trust Me

Happy and relieved

The traditional continuation to the title of this post is “I’m a doctor” and, well, I pretty much am (though not of the medical kind). Attentive readers will know from a previous post that my viva in defense of my thesis was yesterday. Well, despite the fact that I’m sure I spent most of the time wibbling like an idiot and forgetting basic physics, I actually passed (corrections to be completed of course but I haven’t got the list yet so still feel happy!) The viva was actually a pretty surreal experience, it seemed to take both a shorter and longer lenght of time than its actual around 2 and a quarter hours. It was followed by quite some relief ;-)

I should thank Sarah Thompson, my internal, and especially Chris McConville, my external, who managed to just about recover from flu in time to give the viva. And of course, thanks to the surface physics group.
