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