Event description: 

Wright Laboratory is hosting a 3-Minute Thesis Competition at Wright Laboratory on Friday, February 15, 2019 at 3:30 p.m. This competition is open to Wright Laboratory Ph.D. students and all those from the physical sciences who are competing in the official Yale University 3MT competition.

The program is as follows:

Christopher Davis: “Rare nuclear decays”
Ben Foust: “Sterile neutrinos: A potential fix for particle physics’ problem child”
Sumita Ghosh: “Using lasers to look for dark matter”
David Stewart: “Jets, quarks, and small fundamental things”
Christian Weber: “The Higgs Boson, a window to the dark sector”
Jeremy Gaison: “Precision neutrino measurements: The fingerprint of a nuclear reactor”

The 3-Minute Thesis competition challenges Yale PhD students to clearly and compellingly describe their thesis to a broad audience - in 3 minutes! By preparing a successful presentation, students will develop a key professional asset that is just as critical for academic conferences and job talks as it is for a job search outside of the academy.

Guidelines and resources for crafting a 3-Minute thesis can be found on the Yale Office of Career Strategy’s website here: https://ocs.yale.edu/get-prepared/3-minute-thesis-competition
