I have received an official report summarising my viva. It's nice to have it all on paper!
It sounds like I should have given more background during my talk and
made sure that I'm putting my analyses in context ("presentation lacked
a bit of context").
I need to explain better where there are holes in our knowledge and
where the field is lacking data. I should point out how the questions
I'm asking and the analyses I'm carrying out fill in those gaps. Fair
The report ends with a note that "the meeting was very successful and the committee has no hesitation" about me progressing :] Yay :]
