Heat 3 of the 3 minute thesis competition was held yesterday and as with the first two heats, our participants did not disappoint us. From economic & environmental issues to medical & health initiatives and even shedding the light on the dark side of the universe, they were all thought provoking presentations. Well done to them all!
The focus of the three minute thesis competition is to provide graduate students with an opportunity to refine skills that can be transferred after graduation to diverse career paths. Distilling research into a clear form, without over-simplifying or making overly-complex, and highlighting the wider implications of this research are important skills to carry into post-graduate employment and public service. Not an easy task when you think about how much research they have done.
The following programs were represented in Heat 3 - Pathology & Molecular Medicine (James MacLeod, Piriya Yoganathan), Global Development Studies (Siahra Skelton), Epidemiology (AJ Kadhim-Saleh, Atif Kukaswadia), Education (Dana Knarr), Mechanical & Materials Engineering (Aida Rezaei), Neuroscience (Angela Tam), Physics (Tina Pollman), Kinesiology & Health Studies (Heather Gainforth), Anatomy & Cell Biology (Mahmoud Aarabi), Civil Engineering (Prabeen Joshi), Cultural Stuides (Sofia Rivera-Sotelo), Rehabilitation Science (Charla Gray, Lisa Sheehy), Computing (Mohamed Hefny)
Congratulations(from left to right) to James MacLeod (Pathology & Molecular Medicine), Dana Knarr (Education) and Charla Gray (Rehabilitation Science) who all go through to the final on Monday (Biosciences 1101 at 9.30am).
Hope to see you all there!
