Congratulations to Waite PhD student Emma Aspin who is one of two Faculty of Science finalists through to the University of Adelaide’s 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) final.
The 3MT is a national competition celebrating the exciting research conducted by PhD candidates.
PhD candidates have just three minutes and one slide to effectively explain their research to a non-specialist audience. In the best interests of public health, the 2020 3MT Competition has moved to a virtual format, and competitors have submitted a pre-recorded video of their 3MT presentation.
Emma’s presentation, The Goldilocks Grub, outlines her research on parasitoid wasps and their caterpillar hosts. She joins nine other finalists competing for the main prize and one will go on to compete in the virtual Asia Pacific finals.
The University of Adelaide 3MT Finals will be held at 5.30pm on Tuesday, 8 September at a special Research Tuesdays event.
The presentations will be judged by a panel of experts and we also invite you to have your say in the People’s Choice Award, which will be tallied live on the night. If you would like to view the videos prior the event, head to the Three Minute Thesis web page.
GOOD LUCK EMMA!
