Today the viva was held of Yazdan Mansourian, a PhD student I have been co-supervising with Professor Nigel Ford. I am pleased to say that subject to minor corrections he will soon be Dr Mansourian. His dissertation is on Information visibility on the web and conceptions of success and failure in web searching. He has maintained an Invisible web weblog through his research, latterly at http://invisibleweblog.blogspot.com/
Congratulations to Yazdan! In the photo (left to right) Barry Eaglestone (internal examiner), Bill Johnston (External Examiner), Yazdan, Nigel Ford (co-supervisor with me), taken just after the viva. I was taking the photo, obviously.
