Today was a big day - I successfully defended my dissertation entitled "The dynamics of audio-visual integration capacity as a function of environmental difficulty, stimulus factors, and experience" at Ryerson University! With some minor revisions to come, I have now completed all the requirements of my PhD, which is a real load off!
Many thanks to my supervisor, Dr. Ben Dyson, who flew in for the defense from his current post at the University of Sussex (UK), for all his support and assistance with everything. Special thanks also go to Dr. Laurence Harris (York University) who served as the external examiner for my dissertation and provided highly constructive criticism both before and during the defense. Finally, thanks to the rest of my examination committee, Dr. Maureen Reed (Psychology), Dr. Margaret Moulson (Psychology), Dr. Frank Russo (Psychology), Dr. Stephanie Walsh Matthews (Arts and Contemporary Studies), and Dr. Frankie Stewart (Engineering, Chair).
I'm now looking forward to completing my revisions and looking towards new adventures - and NOT being a student for the first time in about 26 years....
