Come watch SU’s top grad student research communicators square off in the finals of the 8th annual Three-Minute Thesis competition. Contestants from research programs all around campus have 180 seconds to convey the nature, significance, and inherent interest of their research to non-specialists, using only one static projected image (i.e., slide). A multidisciplinary panel of judges determines the winner, while the audience awards the “People’s Choice.” The finalists are:

  • Adam Cucchiara, Public Administration and International Affairs
  • Raj De, Physics
  • Supreetha Guntur, Architecture
  • Onkar Joshi, Architecture
  • Seth Knievel, Communication and Rhetorical Studies
  • Jian Shi, Mass Communications
  • Caitlin Smith, Human Development and Family Science
  • Noah Wason, Composition and Cultural Rhetoric
  • Jason Webb, Teaching & Leadership

This year’s winner will have an opportunity to represent Syracuse University in the National Association of Graduate Schools’ 3MT competition and the all-ACC showdown of 3MT champions. Refreshments provided.
