Congratulations!!

Congratulations to Amy Bishop on her successful PhD thesis viva!!!

Amy just after her viva (hence the somewhat frazzled look!). A glass of champagne and a seal cake were well deserved!

Or should we now say, Dr. Amy Bishop!

It seems like just yesterday she arrived, but after 3.5 years, Amy successfully defended her work on the “Behavioural Mechanisms of Conflict and Conflict Reduction in a Wild Breeding Polygynous Pinniped”. Much of the work she presented has been discussed our blogs (for example here, here and here), but I’m sure more interesting information is yet to come!!

Congratulations and thanks are also in order for Sean and Paddy–none of this would have happened without their amazing supervising and mentoring!!

Paddy, Amy and Sean after the viva. There is a picture with Jack in it somewhere...if we find it we will upload that too!

Paddy, Amy and Sean after the viva. I don’t think they planned the purple coordination

Special thanks to Dr. Jack Lawson for coming in from Canada to act as the external examiner, and to Dr. Phil Stephens from Durham University as the internal examiner.
