I was very glad that I was able to attend my PhD graduation ceremony in Brisbane last week. My extended family were there to cheer me on, as well as both of my supervisors and my dear friend, Kal. Out of 28 doctorates there were a dozen from maths, including four statisticians. Unfortunately none of us snagged an Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award, but it was nice to be nominated!
Once again I would like to thank my supervisors Kerrie Mengersen & Fiona Harden for their mentorship, as well as my co-authors Cathy Hargrave, Chris Drovandi, Christian Robert, Tony Pettitt, Tim Deegan & Mike Poulsen for their contributions to my research.
