Imagine describing your entire thesis or dissertation to a general audience in just 3 minutes.
Rada Petric (left) did just that, earning her title as the winner of the 2018 Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition. Rada is currently working towards her Ph.D. in Biology at UNC Greensboro and says she was urged to enter the competition by her academic advisor. Rada’s research focuses on the effects of man-made noise on wild mice. She says that the 3MT competition greatly improved her public speaking skills as well as her ability to explain her own research to anyone. Rada now will compete at the United States Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Association conference in Charleston, South Carolina, in late September.
Registration is now open for the 2019 3MT competition: https://forms.gle/4hkGebxuHZ7NXkPB9 Preliminary rounds will be held October 29th-30th with the final round being hosted by The Graduate School on November 14th in the Alumni House.
