Three Minute Thesis Success

On the 30th May the University held its second, annual, three minute thesis competition (3MT). This is a research communication competition developed by the University of Queensland. It challenges postgraduate research students to present their work and its impact in language that everyone can understand. The key is to be precise and concise with a sprinkling of flair.

This year each Faculty held an internal competition and put their best students through to the Institutional final. We had three representatives from the Faculty of Natural Sciences. Tom Di Virgilio from Psychology told us about his work on the short term impacts of heading a ball. Craig Docherty from Computing Science and Mathematics told us about his work on gamification and tree health and Iona Paterson, also from CS&M told us about her findings that non-traditional antibiotic treatment regimes could clear infection more efficiently, reducing resistance.

All three speakers did an excellent job, but particular congratulations go to Iona who won second place with the judges and also won the people's choice award.

Overall this was a fun event, presenting your research in three minutes is a real challenge and excellent transferable skill. I hope lots more of our PhD students will take part next year.
