Graduate Students shine a light on their research

March 9th, 2018

The Three Minute Thesis Competition: Four graduate students in math recently took up the daunting challenge of presenting their research within three minutes with the aid of only one slide. They made it look easy! The audience of students, faculty, postdoctoral fellows and staff grasped complex ideas through accessible examples, such as training (theoretical) teams of horses to co-operate without communicating, and how some naked mole rats (the nasty ones) are more successful than others. The students displayed clarity of thought and great communication skills.
