Viva la Viva- double success for CTAMOP researchers

Last updated May 30, 2017 by Andrew Brown

Two PhD students in CTAMOP have completed their studies within a matter of weeks of each other.

Under the supervision of Prof. Hugo van der Hart, Ola Hassouneh and Hector Rey have been working in the department for the last three years and– having negotiated their vivas and completing their theses– have now moved on to new challenges.

Having been funded by the University of Jordan throughout her PhD, Ola now returns to her Alma Mater to take up a lectureship position commencing September 2015. Hector– who came to Queen’s as part of the EU-CORINF, initial training network– is leaving academia behind, undertaking training for work in financial services.

Congratulations to Dr. Hassouneh and Dr. Rey. Thank-you for all you have contributed to the life of CTAMOP. We wish you all the best for the future.
