I would like to congratulate Hamidreza for getting his PhD. When I first met Hamidreza I found him to be far too polite and figured that once he gets to know me better the politeness will wear off. However, after 4 years of working with him the politeness did wear off. Behind that niceness is a strong character with the will to succeed. He was meticulous in writing his PhD and exceedingly well prepared for his PhD viva which showed during the questions and answers exchange with the examiners. Whilst I was pleased with his performance, Hamidreza is a perfectionist and was not satisfied with himself. After the PhD viva Hamidreza and his examiners Prof Dermot Brabazon and Dr Monika Gamza were full of smiles.
Well done. I am proud of your success and I am confident this is the beginning of great things.
