External Examiner of a PhD from Brazil

Due to the marvels of technology, today I examined a PhD by a Brazilian Student from the Federal University of Parana (UFPR), South East Brazil. Graziela Scalise Horodyski, a PhD Candidate from the Faculty of Geography, defended a thesis entitled “Tourism Experience and Consumption: Souvenirs in Curitiba-PR”.


The session started with a 30 minute presentation by the candidate, which was followed by comments and questions from the examiners. The thesis was examined by the supervisor (Dr. José Gândara), myself and 4 other academics, all from UFPR: Professor Zaki Sobrinho (who is also UFPR’s Rector), Dr. Kleber Puchaski, Dr. Vander Valduga and Dr. Luís Lopes Diniz Filho. After a robust defense, the examining panel unanimously approved the thesis. Congratulations to Dr. Grazi!
