NTU Student Crowned Champion at 3MT Asia Pacific - Ms Luo Yifei

We are pleased to announce that Ms Luo Yifei, PhD student of Professor Chen Xiaodong, has bested 7 other PhD students from universities in the region to win the 2020 Asia Pacific Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition on Thursday, 1 October 2020. We have made history as the first Singapore University to win the Asia Pacific 3MT Finals since its inception in 2016. Ms Luo delivered a brilliant presentation of her thesis, entitled “Listening in on Plants through a Conductive Liquid Glue".

About Three Minute Thesis (3MT)
Three Minute Thesis Competition was launched in The University of Queensland in 2008. 3MT competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. The 3MT competition has been adopted in 85 countries outside Australia.
Our heartiest congratulations to Yifei for making NTU proud!
