Liu Showcases Research in Graduate School’s Three-Minute Thesis Competition
Shirelle Liu showcased her research by participating in the Three-Minute Thesis Competition (3MT). This competition tasks students with presenting their research within a tight 180-second timeframe, ensuring clarity for an intelligent audience without subject-specific backgrounds. The competition allows participants to use only one static slide and no other additional props. Beyond its competitive aspect, the Three-Minute Thesis plays a role in honing the presentation and communication skills of graduate students.
Victorious in the Department of Psychology’s 3MT, Liu progressed to the university-wide graduate school competition. Although she didn’t secure a placement in the latter, Liu’s commendable performance at the departmental level remains a testament to her exceptional abilities. Congratulations to Shirelle Liu for her noteworthy achievement in the Three-Minute Thesis Competition.
