It’s done!

Filed under: Personal — paulcook @ 2:01 pm

This Wednesday I successfully defended my PhD thesis, so I’m now Dr. Cook!

It’s been a great day or two since then — big party Wednesday night, with lots of tasty things, then sleeping reaaallly late Thursday, then some excellent sushi that evening at a great place on Hollywood Boulevard (on the walk of stars).

Now it’s back to the office to catch up on some marking (grading) of homeworks, and my thousands of unread emails. But I’m looking forward to coming out of the isolation the last few months have required!

  2. Hey there, Many congratulations! That’s great news.

    As Michelle says (Hi Michelle), what’s next?

    Would be good to catch up when the piles of e-mails have been waded through.

    All the best,

  3. ‘Gratz Dr. Cook!

    I was just about to write a snarky ‘update in your own time’ email when I checked in and found this so I guess you’ve been fairly busy on other stuff :)

    Great to see it all worked out – what was your topic?
