Postgraduate students from across the Centre for Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Ocean and Earth Science took part in the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Faculty final.

James Frith, PhD student in Electrochemistry was voted the overall winner, for his presentation 'Supercharging Lithium Batteries'.

Speaking about the final, James said: "The competition was tough for the faculty final because all the talks were so good. With the University final approaching, I'm certainly beginning to get nervous, but as long as my talk is well received I'll be happy."

James will be competing against the other faculty winners from across the University in the University Grand Final tomorrow (14 May 2014).

Chemistry was also represented in the Faculty Final by Nathalie Busschaert (Molecular Assembly, Function and Structure) and Abigale Male (Molecular Diagnostics and Therapeutics) who impressed the judges with their respective presentations.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MTTM) is a skills development activity, created by the University of Queensland, which challenges postgraduate researchers to explain their research project to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes. Approximately 150 of our postgraduate researchers from across the eight faculties competed in local heats during February and March.
