Saad Javaid Wins Annual Three Minute Thesis Competition
Article by Emma Ryan
Three minutes isn’t a lot of time — especially when you have to distill years of research into a single presentation. But on April 9, that’s exactly what 11 graduate students did during the final round of Georgia Tech’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition.
Saad Javaid, a doctoral student in Materials Science and Engineering, won first place and a research travel grant of $2,000 for his presentation, UltraVision and Time Manipulation: Technology Inspired Superpowers for Studying Cracks.
Additional awards were given to the following students:
Ph.D. Runner-up: Muhammad Saad Zia, Electrical and Computer Engineering Mitigating Beam Alignment Errors in Millimeter-Wave Communications to Go Beyond 5G
Ph.D. Third Place: Megan McSweeney, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering AptaTrigger: A Novel Biosensor Platform for Point-of-Care Diagnostics
Master’s Winner: Clara Glassman, Medical Physics Creating the Google Maps of Brain-Behavior Relationships: A New Look at Post Stroke MRIs
People’s Choice Award: Megan McSweeney, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering AptaTrigger: A Novel Biosensor Platform for Point-of-Care Diagnostics
