Call me doctor
Thesis oral defense on Monday, 3/20. I successfully defended my thesis work, essentially the last six years of my life. It still hasn't quite hit me, although I am enjoying having people walk up to me and wish me congratulations.
Would have been nice to have more of my family attend, but we are a far-flung bunch: wife Melissa in Africa, brother Ben in Chicago, brother G3 returning from Argentina, brother Drew in Japan, and sister Sarah in SF. Both of my parents attended and I was glad to have a chance to present my research to them.
Still some writing to finish up, but I am getting ready to transition to my upcoming medical career.
