Three Minute Thesis 2018

  • by

After spending months working on a registration document and various papers which require me tease concepts out of the combination of multiple papers I was presented with the challenge of participating in the Three Minute Thesis competition and I took it.

Founded by the University of Queensland, the Three Minute Thesis requires participants to explain their research, in layman’s terms, in three minutes. You can only use one slide and your timer starts as soon as open your mouth.

This proved to be so challenging, particularly as I had to completely change the way in which I wrote AND found myself dealing with an unexpected bundle of nerves on competition day. However, it was also very rewarding to be able to package my work into something my mother could understand – which she did!

I ended up taking first place in my department’s heat and was the 1st runner up for the university. Not bad for a first attempt!
