Congratulations to Chenman (Cara) Yin – Winner of Queen’s 3 Minute Thesis

Only standing room was left when eight graduate students and two post-doctoral fellows presented their research at the March 24 Queen’s 3 Minute Thesis Final. Each participant had just three minutes and one static slide to convey their research to the four non-specialist judges and the audience. The 2015 judges were Queen’s principal and vice-chancellor Daniel Woolf, Ann Lukits, a science journalist who writes for the Wall Street Journal, DuPont researcher Ken Stevens, and Keystone vice-president Toby Abramsky.

It was a tight competition, but in the end Physics Master’s student Chenman (Cara) Yin took the first place with her presentation “Seeing the world at the tip of a laser beam”, followed by runner-up Nicolle Dominik, a PhD student in Physiology, who presented on the cardiopulmonary system. Changhai Zhu, Master’s student in Biology, won the People’s Choice Award with his presentation on fisheries research.


Queen’s 3 Minute Thesis – A fun event and an exciting opportunity

With just one day left before the 3 Minute Thesis® final on March 24, the participants and judges are getting ready for the big event. Eight Graduate students across all disciplines will be presenting their research, on topics such as detecting waterborne pathogens, the protection of indigenous knowledge, the management of waste, or the human nervous system. For the first time in Queen’s 3MT history, two post-doctoral fellows will present their research alongside their graduate student colleagues, and compete for the People’s Choice Award. For this award, the audience can vote electronically for their favourite presentation using a new online voting system.
