Dan, I must thank you for all your advice and work that you have put into this thing. I know that my thesis wouldn't be the same without your help. I really do appreciate everything that you have done and I'll always remember it. In fact, I feel so very lucky that I got to work with you. A huge chunk of this thesis belongs to you.[Quoted with permission.]
It should be pointed out that Peter was kind enough to include me as a co-author on some of the papers that came out of his thesis work, which I appreciate.
Peter is a bright fellow and collaborating with him and Kim has been a pleasure. I wish him all the best, and hope to work with him again one day.
