Congratulations to Danilo, who submitted his Thesis for examination today (remotely from Italy). Danilo joined us in 2015. His PhD was funded by a doctoral scholarship by the School of Chemical Sciences as part of my startup at the University of Auckland. Danilo did well on a challenging project. He was also very good at coming up with new ideas and setting his research direction. Two manuscripts that are currently under review wouldn’t have been written without his ideas to get those projects started. He was also an instrumental member of the group, training new students and giving them good advice. Good luck and hope to see you at your oral examination.
