MT3F 2019: and the winners are... [fr]

This year, 4 PhD students were rewarded for their communication skills, their passion and their ability to make their research accessible.

On Wednesday 13th March, 15 PhD students from Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Maynooth took part in the 2019 edition of My Thesis in 3 minutes in French.

My Thesis in 3 minutes in French.

My Thesis in 3 minutes in French is a competition open to all PhD students registered in a Higher Education Institution in Ireland. They have to face the challenge of presenting their thesis in 3 minutes and in French.

And the winners are…

Traditionally, the jury awards two prizes (elocution and outreach) and the audience votes for their favourite candidate. However, this year, due to the high quality of the presentations, the jury decided to award a fourth prize, to reward originality.
- Elisa Di Carlo, from University of Limerick won both the Audience Prize and the Jury Prize, sponsored by Transavia. Her research looks into bioassays for assessing bauxite residues rehabilitation strategies.

- Ricardo Valdes-Bango Curell, from Dublin City University, won the Originality Prize, sponsored by dada restaurant. His research, presented in a poem, focuses on ways to control hamster cells.

- Maude Baudraz, from Trinity College Dublin, won the Elocution Prize, sponsored by ely wine bar. Her research looks into population stability in plants.

- Ayoub Lasri, from Royal College of Surgeons Ireland, won the Outreach Prize, sponsored by Chez Max. His research looks into mathematical modelling and therapy-induced drug resistance in glioblastoma.


My Thesis in 3 minutes in French is an event organised by the Embassy of France in Ireland as part of the Francophonie Festival.
