I returned to the University of Iowa to defend my PhD dissertation entitled "Liquid identity in music composition". I would like to thank my supervisor Professor David Gompper for his valuable artistic and academic guidance throughout my doctoral degree. Further, I would like to thank my doctoral committee members Assistant Professor Jean François Charles (joining us live from Paris via Skype), Professor Christine Getz, Professor John Muriello and Associate Professor Gregory Hand for their academic support.
I successfully defended my PhD dissertation!
