SIGN PhD candidate success at the UQ Three Minute Thesis competition

6 July 2021

The School of Psychology's UQ Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition round was recently held in June 2021. SIGN's PhD candidates, Mai Tanjitpiyanond and Belen Alvarez, and School of Psychology PhD candidate, Nadia Fox, all competed in the competition. Mai, whose 3MT presentation was titled The Rich and The Poor: A Narrative of Inequality’, and Nadia, whose 3MT was titled ‘Stress, Recovery, Mental Control, and Performance in Complex Environments’, were both successfully selected to progress to the Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences round on the 4th August 2021. 

Entering its 14th year, the annual UQ 3MT competition helps to cultivate students' academic, presentation and research communication skills, requiring students to explain their research in three minutes to a non-specialist audience.

The 2021 3MT finals will be held on Wednesday 15 September at Customs House in Brisbane, bringing together the 8 finalists from each of UQ's six faculties, along with the winner of the Combined-Institute competition and a Wildcard entrant. The successful 2021 UQ 3MT finalists will share in a $8,000 prize pool. To attend this event please register here by 2 August 2021.

Congratulations to Mai, Nadia and Belen, and the best of luck to Mai and Nadia in the next round of the competition!
