Doctoral examination

The 9th of March 2011.

 The last four years I have been striving toward this day: reading, thinking, searching, computing, finding, writing, discussing, and presenting it all in 20 minutes. It is a bit like climbing a mountain, with extensive preparations and dedicated work until finally reaching the peak at the end. What a relief and joy to share it with so many friends, colleagues, and family! Thank you all for coming and for your support during this time! Below are some snapshots of the day.

Grattis igen! Det var roligt att fira med dig. Snygga bilder du har fått upp. Jag såg också att man ser din symbol/ikon uppe i flik fönstret när hemsidan är öppen... Har inte sett det förut. Ser mycket bra ut!
