Today, James Keeble became Dr Keeble by passing his PhD viva. Congratulations, James!
His thesis was on the use of machine learning techniques in understanding atomic nuclei, applying neural networks to build up the fundamental quantum mechanical quantity that describes microscopic systems: The wave function. A part of his thesis work has already been published (in Physics Letters B), and the examiners recognised the high quality of the whole thesis, recommending that the University award him a doctorate.
His PhD supervisor, Arnau Rios, recently moved from Surrey to join the University of Barcelona, but stayed in touch to help James through the last stages. The picture below, provided by Arnau and posted on Twitter, shows James on his first day studying his PhD
