AIBN heats up with 2022 Three Minute Thesis

The Three Minute Thesis competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students around the world. Developed by The University of Queensland, the competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills.

Presenting in a 3MT competition enables students to increase their ability to effectively explain their research, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. AIBN's 2022 3MT heat was held on Tuesday, June 21, with 11 amazing entrants. 

First place

First place was awarded to Yusra Rabbani from the Blakey Group who gave a presentation titled “The Gold-Studded Bandage”. Yusra’s PhD project looks into the use of gold particles for wound healing.

Runner up

The runner up was Ruijing (Sophie) Xin from the Yamauchi Group who gave a presentation titled “Supercapacitor: the powerhouse of the next-generation energy storage”. Ruijing's PhD project is looking at improving supercapacitors for the next generation of electric vehicles.

People's Choice

People's choice this year went to Yixin Chang from the Whittaker Group, who gave a presentation titled: "Immune Tom and Stealth Jerry". In her presentation, Yixin used the metaphor of Tom and Jerry to explain her work on using stealth particles to outsmart the immune system.

AIBN would like to extend congratulations to this year's winners, but also to all our other fantastic entrants.
