Dissertation Haiku

Dissertation Haiku is exactly that: dissertations in haiku form. Not holding true to more than syllable pattern, scholars are asked to submit discipline, name of institution, a sentence or two in plain English about what they do, and any email address or link.

Dissertation Haiku is the creation of Drew Steen who finished his Ph.D. in Marine Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is now doing postdoctoral work in the Biology Department (microbiology section) and the Center for Geomicrobiology at Aarhus University in Denmark. As he puts it: “I’m currently in my eighth year of being paid to study how stuff rots in the ocean.”
