IES PhD student Gabriele Pisetta qualifies for 3 Minute Thesis Competition final

Institute of Energy Systems (IES) PhD student Gabriele Pisetta has won the College of Science and Engineering's heat to qualify for the final of the University's 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition.

Gabriele's presentation showcased his PhD research on morphing blades for tidal turbines, which is supervised by Dr Ignazio Maria Viola.

The 3MT competition requires doctoral researchers to compete to deliver the best research presentation in just 3 minutes (and one slide). It is based on a concept developed by the University of Queensland which quickly spread across Australia and New Zealand, and has since gone global.

The University has run a 3MT competition every year since 2013. This year's final will take place on Monday 27 June 2019 from 2pm in G.07 Informatics Forum.

Congratulations Gabriele and good luck in the final!
