Passed My PhD Confirmation Viva

I undertook my Ph.D. Confirmation viva voce today (6th Feb 2018). This entailed a presentation and a report to two professors, Dr. Jonathan Dukes (presentation chair) and Dr. Michael Manzke (domain expert) of Trinity College Dublin who questioned me during and after the presentation. After a short discussion with my supervisor Dr. David Gregg, they confirmed me to the Ph.D. register and therefore become a Ph.D. candidate.
