Abel Mathew, a third-year clinical psychology doctoral student, won 1st place at UWM’s second annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.
The competition was hosted by the Graduate School and the Office of Research. Originally developed by the University of Queensland, the purpose of the competition is to have students cultivate their presentation and research communication skills, while effectively explaining their research projects in three minutes to a non-specialist audience. The competition drew approximately 70 competitors, who participated in qualifying rounds during March.
Fourteen finalists were chosen and presented their 3MT talks on April 10th in the UWM Union in front of 4 judges. As a winner, Abel was awarded a $1,500 prize.
This is the second time UWM’s Department of Psychology has obtained 1st place at the 3MT competition. Congratulations to Abel for representing the department so well!
