Highlights of 3MT 2011


Post-event Sharing

Mr Yalun ZHANG

“I am very fortunate and honored to have the opportunity to take part in the first Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition held at HKU and share my research findings with others. I am really excited about getting the championship. The competition increased my confidence and enhanced my self- determination to continue my research career.”


1st Runner-up:
Ms Selina Suet Lin LAI

“3MT has been an unforgettable experience. Although at first I was apprehensive about the idea of turning what will be a 300-page thesis into a 3-minute presentation, I was immediately drawn to the challenge. The contest has sharpened my thesis direction, and opened up a valuable platform for me to continue to communicate the importance of literature and culture in our lives to the public.”


2nd Runner-up:
Mr Aleksandr Borisovich KOGAN
Social Sciences

“Taking part in the 3MT competition was a tremendous experience and challenge. Boiling down years of research into a few short minutes is an arduous task - but so many professional and everyday settings call for such conciseness. And it is precisely this challenge that gives the 3MT competition so much charm.”


People’s Choice Award Winner:
Ms Yunzi LI

“3MT provides a platform for us to express and share knowledge, and as such, drives students into deeper mood of self-clarification. Presenting my research in three minutes refreshed the knowledge I gained during my research. 3MT is the medium which allows the whole picture of your research to manifest itself to you.”
