Almost at the same time, I was for the first time a member of the 'opposition' in a Dutch PhD defence. An interesting experience, yet other traditions, much more formal than in the UK.
Last week I had the privilege to be involved with the completion of two PhDs.
One of my own students successfully passed his viva. Always an exciting moment for me, even if, or maybe because. supervisors do not do much at this stage.
Passed my PhD viva! 🎉🎉🎉
As usual, Christopher makes describing @LIGO@twitter.com science in a fun way look easy. Essential reading!
Enjoy some weekend reading and catch up@LIGO@twitter.comhe latest @LIGO/@ego_virgo gravitational-wave discovery #GW190425 with my blog explaining the science highlights—is this evidence for a new way of making binary neutron stars? https://cplberry.com/2020/01/06/gw190425/
Thank you for sending these nice photos and updates. It's great to see the next generation of GW scientists (and Finesse users) working together.
The finesse workshop finale group pic @IUCAApune . It was a great workshop and all credits go to the mentors @gwoptics and the student participants who gave their best! I hope we have many more like these on our road towards @LIGOIndia
If you missed it last week: Chirp is a new app to track the news on #GravitationalWaves from @LIGO@twitter.com and @email@example.com
Yay, well done!
