Lisa Callagher (soon to be PhD)

17 December 2010

My friend and colleague Lisa Callagher submitted her PhD thesis today. Yay; and I’m so jealous.

Interestingly, even as she was walking it over to the Graduate Centre, she was thinking on what/how she might change it. She says it’s a sign of being a “true academic’.

In her thesis, she uses theories of practice to explore innovation in the bio-tech sector. We’re both practice theorists at heart. I don’t recall how we found out that we shared similar theoretical views…. perhaps she’ll remind me at some stage.

This transition probably signals her moving away from being a Senior Tutor, and becoming a Senior Lecture. That’s something of which she is very deserving.

Kudos, Lisa (and I don’t often use bold).
