A fantastic 1-2 finish by ESP students at the GMU 2017 3MT Competition

Chelsie Romulo – 1st place

Congratulations are in order for ESP PhD candidates Chelsie Romulo and Rachel Golden Kroner for placing 1st and 2nd respectively in the final of 2017 3MT (Three Minute Thesis) Competition on March 25, 2017.

3MT is a global research communication competition where PhD students present their doctoral research to a non-specialist audience using only one single visual aid—all in three minutes. This exercise encourages graduate students to think about their research from an outsider’s perspective, hones their presentation skills, and provides a forum for a cross-disciplinary exchange of exciting ideas and information.

Rachel Golden Kroner – 2nd place
