Monday Geology Picture: PhD Defense

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

At my post-defense party in the WHOI student center.

On Friday the 13th I successfully defended my PhD in Marine Geology in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program. For this week’s geology picture, here I am on Friday with my co-advisors Susan Humphris and Ken Sims at my post-defense party.

Everyone has to call me Dr. Evelyn now… at least for a few days. Then everyone can call me just plain old Evelyn again.

Once I recover from post-thesis exhaustion and finish up my revisions, you can expect the pace of blogging to pick up here slightly. I even plan to resurrect the Geology Word of the Week, so stay tuned!
