Doctor Capello!

December 22nd, 2009 by lucas

He might too shy to tell everybody, but the world must know. Luca Capello successfully defended his PhD thesis today at Université de Genève, getting a “Très Bien” mention.

I must admit that my last biology lesson was 13 years ago, so I’m not sure I can really comment on his work on Vomeronasal Receptors: from Monogenic Expression to Axon Guidance. But I was very impressed by the quality of the experimental process, especially compared to what we do in computer science.

Debian was well represented at the defense, since Axel Beckert, Didier Raboud and the Debian kilt were also there.

Welcome to the list of Debian Developers holding PhD degrees, Luca!
