A quick note to say that I am now a doctor (and have been since 3pm-ish on Wednesday 9 September). You can read my thesis here. The examiners were Marco Schlichting from Warwick and Peter Kropholler from Southampton. The viva lasted about an hour and a half and I was given no official corrections (though there were a few typos to fix). In the evening we had dinner in a Thai restaurant, then went to the Butcher’s Hook for some celebratory beers. It’s weird being a doctor. I thought I’d feel cleverer by now.
UPDATE: A couple of pictures from graduation.
