Event description

Description

An 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present, you have…3 minutes!

Join us to launch ECU's 2018 3MT competition with special guest Michael Wheeler.

Michael will discuss how his success within the three minute thesis (3MT) competition lead to a subsequent 10-week internship with a science podcast, The Naked Scientists, based in Cambridge, UK. He will discuss how the world of science communication works in conjunction with the world of research. Michael will also share insight on the importance of ‘the message’ of a piece of research to those outside the field, a key skill for 3MT competitors.

Michael Wheeler studied undergraduate exercise science at Dublin City University in Ireland, with a final year focus on the metabolic effects of subcutaneous versus visceral fat loss. He is currently completing his PhD on the topic of sedentary behaviour and brain health, which is a collaborative project between The University of Western Australia and the Baker Institute in Melbourne.
