In Spring 2022, Brandeis will be hosting the three minute thesis competition (3MT). Describe your research in under 3 minutes to a panel of judges and using only one slide.

The Brandeis 3MT competition is a university-sponsored speaking competition designed to showcase graduate student research in three-minute talks to a general audience. This is an opportunity for graduate students engaged in original research to develop communication and presentation skills while sharing their work with faculty, staff, and students across Brandeis University.
