Candidate Mick!

Mick is a PhD candidate!

On the entirely coincidental date of 4.20, Mick passed his quals! And with flying colours, by all accounts. Thanks to Ben, Brent, Britt, and Cindy for being on his committee, and to Carrie for organizing the celebrations. And congratulations to Mick!!!

Getting the festivities going! Ah, awkward cheese. (Mick demonstrating some of his non-academic skills).


Cutting the cake.


And what a cake!!!!!! Look at those Azolla! (Culinary and artistic genius: Carrie Tribble).
