Congratulations to CQC²T PhD student Georgina Carson for placing second in the UNSW 3 Minute Thesis Final.

UNSW Sydney’s most exciting doctoral research has been showcased as 22 students took part in the 3 Minute Thesis Final on Tuesday evening, with second place awarded to Georgina for her presentation about developments in quantum computing.

PhD candidates had just 180 seconds, and a single Powerpoint slide, to explain their research in a clear and concise manner – and demonstrate why it is so important.

With $3,000 on offer for first prize, the academic competition was fierce – as research candidates consolidated their ideas and distilled their discoveries down to a comprehensible bite-size presentation.
