On May 13, I officially was notified by the Graduate Division of the University of California, Berkeley that I had completed all the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy! I had submitted my dissertation several days before, after getting signatures from all four of my advisors — Kate O’Neill, Keith Gilless, David Levine, and David Vogel. It was a long and arduous process, but in the end quite rewarding. Thanks to everyone who helped me get through it!
Also below are a few more pictures from the College of Natural Resources’ Commencement Ceremony, which was held in Berkeley’s Greek Theater. Very cool — you can see a couple of pictures from the big day below, including one of me about to be “hooded!”
I’ve also posted an abstract and executive summary of my dissertation on this website — you can access them here. If you’d like to see the entire dissertation, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a copy.
