The Three Minute Thesis ® (3MT) competition challenged PhD students to present a compelling spoken presentation of their research topic and its significance in just three minutes.
From over 50 applicants, 8 finalists emerged one winner, Chris Worth.
The event was judged by Professor Sheena Cruikshank (Academic Lead for Public Engagement), Dee-Ann Johnson (Public Engagement Manager, Social Responsibility) and Dr Debbie Smith (Doctoral Academy Student Experience Lead, FBMH).
Chris, a PhD student in the Faculty of Science and Engineering, impressed the judges with his talk entitled ‘The Problem with Lie-ins’ to take home the £500 first prize. Kasey Hatch (FSE) took 2nd place and Zoe Schyns (FSE) took 3rd.
Chris will now be entered into the Vitae-hosted UK online Semi Final with a chance of a place in the UK final in September. Good luck Chris!
