PhD Defence (07/2011)


This is the talk that I gave for my PhD defence.  The theme was inspired (loosely) by Art Nouveau, which can be seen most clearly in the section titles that were drawn by my wife.

(This deck contains a significant amount of material that I later cut for the final talk, which I’ve left at the end.  It’s a good illustration of how you need to be ruthless when practicing talks;  I like what I’d done with those slides, but some I couldn’t fit in for time, and others just didn’t pull their weight so they had to go).
