Three Minute Thesis Competition

 

| Open Player in New Window

The University of Oregon conducted our first Three Minute Thesis competition in Spring 2013. Eleven finalists were selected from preliminary rounds on April 23 and May 1 to compete in the Championship on May 8.

Congratulations to our winners:

First Place: Linda Konnerth (Doctoral/Linguistics) “A Descriptive Grammar of Karbi”

Runner Up: Matthew Goslin (Doctoral/Geography)
“Torrent Sedge: An Ecosystem Engineer Aiding Restoration”
People’s Choice: Meaghan Emery (Doctoral/Geological Sciences)
“Variation in modern artiodactyls and implications for Oreodont phylogeny”

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed by the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, for research students. The exercise develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of graduate students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes in a language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience. The trademarked name of this event is Three Minute Thesis, but students may present research they are conducting for a thesis, dissertation,terminal project, or any other research project they are working on. The University of Oregon will hold its second 3MT® Competition in 2014.
