I travelled to Troy at the end of last week, from 20 April to 23 April to present and defend my dissertation proposal before my committee.  The defense was held at RPI on Friday, April 21 at 2:00 PM.  I’m happy to report that the proposal was approved by the committee.  Now, as soon as all the requisite paperwork is filed, I will officially be ABD–all but dissertation.
