Antony is having a pretty good July – and certainly a much warmer month that the rest of us back in Adelaide. First stop the SETAC conference in Darwin, where he was runner up in the best student poster competition. Then off to London for his viva, where he successfully defended his PhD. To boot, the UK has also had record warm weather while be’s been there. So not only will he be coming back to Adelaide with a prize and (subject to just some minor corrections) a PhD, but we also suspect he will be sporting a fairly serious tan.
