his year our PhD student Andres Rivero made it to the Bristol three-minute thesis final with his presentation on flexible airplanes.
Three Minute Thesis is an international competition that celebrates exciting research by PhD students. Developed by The University of Queensland , the competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases your capacity to effectively explain your research in three minutes, using lay language. Competitors are allowed one PowerPoint slide, but no other resources or props.
