Last week I was one of the judges for the Visualise Your Thesis competition. We saw 12 engaging 60-second visualisations of research that will change lives. Congratulations to our winner, Anthony Chi Hin Leung who is using quantum physics to keep our data safe. Anthony is off to the International Final hosted by Melbourne University. The people’s choice award went to Shamim Homayun for his stunning visual and poetic description of Afghanistan’s cultural landscapes.
We have another competition coming up – the #ANU3MT 3 Minute Thesis competition will be streamed on 4 September at noon. While we can’t celebrate together in Llewelyn Hall, you are welcome to join us online to support your colleagues. Register for a free ticket here, strictly limited places.
