Today, my good friend Ziba successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis! Ziba conducted an amazing program of research during her Ph.D. and defended her work with such intelligence, confidence and, believe it or not, humour1 today that it would have been impossible not to have been impressed. So congratulations, Dr. Ziba, on a job well done and best wishes in your future endeavors!
1I mean, seriously, who cracks jokes during their thesis defence? I was waaaaaay too nervous to do that in mine!
