Viva outcome

I am happy to announce that I successfully defended my PhD thesis yesterday. Professor Adrian Holliday and Dr Richard Fay, acting in the capacity of external and internal examiner respectively, were satisfied that the thesis meets the criteria for the degree, pending minor corrections that will be implemented in due course. I thank them both for their feedback and insights.

Heartfelt thanks also to all of you who sent your encouragement and wishes before the examination, and your congratulations and thoughts after the event. It is such generosity of spirit that keeps reminding me that my friends have always been the best of me.
