Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition winner

(18 June 2020)

The Durham Centre for Academic Development is delighted to announce the results of 2020 Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.

  • Winner: Laura Erel - Can we hear musical syntax?
  • Runner up: Vincent Brooks - Quantum LEGO: Building molecules, one atom at a time.
  • Runner up: Ying Yee - Computer-generated works and related copyright issues.

Voting in the final was incredibly close with only a few point separating the contestants. It goes without saying that the competition this year has not been a smooth journey, but we managed to work around the restrictions put in place and complete the process virtually. Many thanks to all the contestants and the judges who helped to make this a great event.

The 3MT competition does not stop there however. Our final three are invited to represent Durham in the regional competition which is a virtual live event hosted by the University of Sunderland and our finalist Laura will be put forward as our entrant to the national Vitae competition.
