Well, this year I said to myself (after checking out the amazing winning thesis by Min Loo from 2017) that I would try for the Three Minute Thesis Competition. I didn’t expect to win for my university!
“The 3MT is a professional and engaging international competition. It challenges PhD students to present their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience in the space of three minutes. The competition is based on the premise that the capacity to present a clear, concise and engaging description of their research is an essential skill that all graduate researchers should develop. It also brings our graduate research community together in a spirited and research-focused activity, inspiring them to share their findings with the wider community.”
