A cum laude PhD.
Another Dr. is born!
Sjon successfully defended his thesis this week. And he was exceptional and totally deserving of the cum laude (!) that was conferred on him. A thesis defence is always a happy occasion and the culmination of a 4+ year process where you watch with pride as young scientists grow and mature. Sjon will be around for a few more months finishing up some last experiments and manuscripts. Here's a few snapshots from the big day.
