Three Minute Thesis Competition

Congratulations to this year's winners! Jessica Liddell (City, Culture, and Community) won the Grand Prize and Austin Jones (Public Health) won the People's Choice Award.

The Tulane Annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) was held Wednesday, November 18 at 1 pm via Zoom. This annual competition brings PhD students from all disciplines together to present their dissertations in three minutes with one static slide to an educated but non-specialist audience. Judges from Tulane and the community awarded a Grand Prize to the best overall presentation and audience members voted on the People's Choice Award.
