Lukasz gives an invited talk at the CHEMS seminar series, Helsinki University. Thanks to Timo Repo and all the other organisers for the wonderful opportunity!
Enormous congratulations to Carina, who defends her PhD and earns her doctorate! Huge thanks to Prof. Brenton DeBoef for travelling from Rhode Island to be the opponent, and thank you to the other committee members who contributed to a great discussion.
Carina, in keeping with Swedish tradition, nails her PhD freshly printed thesis. The title is "New Arylation Strategies Based on Organomain Group Reactivity." The defence is the next and final challenge!
Karthik becomes the first student from our group to get his PhD. Congratulations, Karthik! A special thank you goes Prof. Victor Snieckus, who travelled from Canada to provide such an interesting opposition.
In what some Swedish observers have already called Spikning, Karthik has kept up an archaic tradition and nailed his freshly printed PhD thesis to a plank of wood. And there was much rejoicing! The defence is the next and final hurdle.
