As mentioned in my last post I defended my dissertation last week, and successfully passed! It was a great experience and I think it went very well! Thanks to everyone who has supported me throughout my PhD, and to my amazing committee members! Below is a photo of me with my two Smithsonian committee members, Dr. Kris Helgen and Dr. Jesus Maldonado.
