Congratulations Dr de Boer

My old friend, co-author and long-term collaborator, Marijke de Boer, survived her PhD viva last week at the University of Wageningen and emerged as Dr de Boer.

The whole event is online; so if you want to see how a formal viva at a Dutch University is conducted, including many interesting question of a variety of degrees of relevance click HERE

The review panel including the University's Rector Magnificus process from the room
Marijke's thesis consists of 8 published papers. 4 come from her work with WDC over the years and 2 of these concern studies made on Bardsey Island. It is entitled: 'Elusive Marine Mammals Explored - Charting under-recorded areas to study the abundance and distribution of cetaceans using Multi-Method approaches and Platforms of Opportunity'.

Well done Marijke and thanks in particular for taking the Bardsey work to fruition. .
