I’m a Doctor!
Posted by isilanes on December 15, 2006
Let the world know it: I made my Ph.D. Thesis defense last tuesday, and I passed! From now on, people may refer to me as “Dr. Silanes” :^)
The title of the thesis was:
Ethylene Polymerization by Group IV Transition Metal Metallocenes
The presentation can be freely downloaded as a 3.2MB PDF. It was done using the PowerDot class for LaTeX. The PowerDot style used was designed by me (from the default style by H. Adriaens and C. Ellison), and is available as a .sty file.
Some pics to illustrate the defense day:
Good vibrations during the Tribunal’s question turn.
Serious, waiting for the calification.
