DKIT | General News

The viva of over 2 hours allowed an in-depth interrogation of her doctoral research thesis – and both Examiners were pleased with the comprehensive defence, and the student gained considerable insight into future directions for the research.

Congratulations Dr Tuleen Alkawadri – and well done to the supervisory team, led by Professor Gerard Sergeant.
