Posted on 5 November 2018

Jamie Khoo our PhD student has recently won the People Choice award at the national finals of the 3MT and become a finalist in the Falling Walls Lab in Surrey. Read about her success and watch her presentation.

After winning the Three Minute Thesis competition at York, one of our CWS PhD students Jamie Khoo went to compete in the national finals, organised by Vitae. Though she was up against tough competition from five other finalists from institutions across the UK, Jamie won the People's Choice Award. This is the first time since the national 3MT competition has been organised that someone from a non-science discipline has won an award.
 
Following her win at York, Jamie also presented as a finalist at the Falling Walls Lab in Surrey, in September 2018. View a part of her presentation here
