What is "My Research in 3 minutes"?
"My Research in 3 Minutes" is a competition where researchers present their research and what it means in a broader context, all within a strict time limit of 3 minutes and with only a single slide as a visual aid. The competition challenges the participant to consolidate their ideas and discoveries in a way that a non-specialist audience can understand. Importantly it is a great vehicle to tell everyone about the exciting research being conducted at the Singapore campus of James Cook University.
On 13 December 2018, “My Research in 3 minutes” competition was held and there were 10 competitors speaking. All the talks were amazing which made the decision by the judges quite difficult however we found some winners.
- Winner of best Student/Alumni Category
Ms. Sneha Chaudhury for her talk titled “Can Singapore be a creative city”.
- Winner of the best Academic/Professional Staff Category
Associate Prof Jennifer Cobcroft for her talk “Disco lights for tuna larvae”.
- Winner of the Audience Vote category

It is important that we continue to celebrate the research undertaken here at the Singapore campus of James Cook University, so we look forward to more events and opportunities where we can promote our research in 2018, starting with the launch of the HDR program on Jan 11th.
