PhD = Done

Hi All,

Just thought I’d let you all know that last week, despite this cursed disease, starting tech 6 months ago and 3 years of study without being diagnosed, I submitted my PhD with a month to spare!

I’m not looking for any congratulations, but just wanted to share some good news πŸ™‚

Nice one. Bloody good effort. When is the viva? What was it about? Is it going to be published? I have decided against it for now and am full of respect for you, knowing exactly what is involved.

Best

I study the impacts of environmental change on seabirds, specifically the European shag at a North Sea colony over half a century.

My research shows that rapid ocean warming is affecting the diet and life history of this highly vulnerable marine top predator.

Indeed, my first two chapters are already published here:

and here:
https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00227-018-3433-9

But these two blogs might be easier to digest if you are interested.

You deserve a big congratulations. I always thought I would go back to college and get my Masters degree when I turned 60. You only have to pay for books and studio fees when you are a senior. The thought of mixing clay, building a kiln and lugging large bags of chemicals has kept me away. I have a nice studio at home and my husband is good helper when it comes to the heavy lifting.

@birdboy – now the name makes sense! I visualise you hanging in a harness off some godforsaken windswept cliff πŸ˜‰

That is fantastic. Are you doing follow-up post-doc stuff now?

Post MSc I write about using data at http://www.theproblemwithdata.com

Best,

Dominic
