Someone has been posting these signs all over the Geology and Geophysics Department at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the Earth and Planetary Science Department at MIT:
I can’t believe that I’m actually going to defend my PhD next week. Honestly, it feels somewhat surreal. I guess I’d better make a presentation! And make sure I know my carbon cycle.

The title of my thesis is: Determining timescales of natural carbonation of Peridotite in the Samail ophiolite, Sultanate of Om… My PhD is technically in Marine Geology, but if I were to describe my expertise in geology, I would […]
