Congratulations to Deirdre Cogan, a member of the Adaptive Sensors Group, who was the overall winner of the Thesis in 3 competition held on 25th October at the Sugar Club in Dublin. Thesis in 3 showcases research from the 9 SFI funded Centres for Science Engineering and Technology (CSET). Each participant has three slides and three minutes to present the audience with an overview of their research. In this year’s final, 18 post graduate researchers presented their research to a general audience who for the first time were given the opportunity to vote for their favourite presenter. Over 250 people attended this years event and a judging panel consisting of high profile individuals from industry, media and state agencies chose the overall winners.
Deirdre’s winning presentation was entitled: Protecting our Environment – Minus the Wellies”. Deirdre will go on to present her talk at the SFI summit which will take place on 12th – 13th November in the Hudson Bay Hotel in Athlone.
The Thesis in 3 event was co-ordinated by Aoibheann Bird from CLARITY, Cara Greene from CNGL and Philip Smyth from Systems Biology Ireland.
