Roman’s DefenseIt is late tonight but I simply wanted to post a note of congratulations to Roman for successfully defending his dissertation today (which contributed to improving the methodology in eye tracking studies – specifically using the domain of computer programing).

Not only was it a well-deserved Ph.D., but it also was a special pleasure to see because since I came to Joensuu, Roman has gone out of his way to be a friend to me in helping me feel welcome and informed of ways to get involved in local things, and I am continually impressed by how much he seems to reach out and help anyone who needs it.

So for these reasons and more, today I say to Dr. Bednarik, “Hyvin tehty!”
