Officially Dr Kirkbride…!

I am amazed and delighted and over the moon to say this little human here passed her viva on Wednesday! I am now apparently and officially Dr Jasmin Kirkbride.

Huge, huge thanks to my wonderful examiners Dr Rebecca Tillett from UEA and Dr Ben Smith from Exeter for reading my thesis, having such wonderful insights about my research, and generally giving me such a lovely viva experience.

Thanks too to my long-suffering and ever-supportive supervisors, Prof Andrew Cowan, Dr Nathan Ashman, and Dr Nonia Williams – you are absolute heroes, where would I be without you?!

Finally, thanks to all my friends and family who’ve supported me on this journey and put up with me being absolute stress ball for most of the last four years. I am so, so grateful for your patience and love.
