Sunday, April 2, 2023

You’ve only got three minutes, better make it count!  

This year, graduate students will answer the call and present their research in non-technical terms to a non-specialist audience in three minutes. Sounds easy, right?  

After five preliminary rounds including 75 participants, only 14 graduate students – twelve Ph.D. students, and two Masters' students – will compete in the final round. This year’s finalists are:  

  • Asim Gazi, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Ph.D.  

  • Shaylyn Grier, Biomedical Engineering, Ph.D.  

  • Nikhil Iyengar, Aerospace Engineering, Ph.D.  

  • Sravan Jayanthi, Computer Science, M.S.  

  • Anamik Jhunjhunwala, Biomedical Engineering, Ph.D.  

  • Nischita Kaza, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Ph.D. 

  • Kavita Matange, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Ph.D. 

  • Juan Mena, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Ph.D.  

  • Veronica Montgomery, Biomedical Engineering, Ph.D. 

  • Pranav Premdas, Electrical and Computer Engineering, M.S. 

  • Kantwon Rogers, Computer Science, Ph.D.  

  • Christopher Roper, Physics, Ph.D.  

  • Anastasia Schauer, Mechanical Engineering, Ph.D.  

  • Corey Zheng, Biomedical Engineering, Ph.D.  

The entire campus community is invited to attend this year’s in-person 3MT Finals, which will be held Thursday, April 6, in the John Lewis Center’s Atlantic Theater, at 5:30 p.m. The competition will also be streaming live: https://gatech.zoom.us/j/92901716012. Audience members and online viewers can vote for their favorite presenter to win the coveted People’s Choice Award.  

Ph.D. winners can win up to $2,000 in research travel grants. The master's winner will receive a $1,000 research travel grant.  

Tech’s 3MT competition is coordinated by the Office of Graduate Education in partnership with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), The Naugle Communications Center, and the Language Institute.
