Three minute thesis success for Katherina Walper Gomez

The Three Minute Thesis competition (3MT) gives York research students the chance to communicate the impact of their research to an audience of school pupils, teachers, university staff, members of the general public and industry. Katherina Walper Gomez, whose research is on non-verbal communication and second language acquisition, came third in the competition. Congratulations Katherina!

3MT participants are able to go on to compete against 11 other research staff and students at the Falling Walls conference. The international conference is focused on identifying future breakthroughs in science and society. Using the metaphor of the fall of the Berlin wall, Falling Walls Labs offer up-and-coming researchers a forum to present their innovative ideas, research projects and social initiatives.

Unfortunately Katherina is unable to attend the Falling Walls competition, but please support the competitors by attending the event on Friday 23 June, 2pm, Spring Lane lecture theatre.

Attendees can book their free ticket via EventBrite.
