Discourse duel set for Monday

Nine finalists will explain their way to glory Monday during the final round of UWindsor’s Three Minute Thesis competition.

The event challenges graduate students to present their research and its significance to a non-specialist audience in an engaging way, with just three minutes and one slide. The event offers cash prizes for a winner, first runner-up and people’s choice, with the champion going on to represent Windsor at a province-wide competition at McMaster University on April 24.

Monday’s competitors include biology students Martin Crozier, Jessica Dare, Maria Ferraiuolo and Ingrid Qemo; chemistry students Hisham Dokainish, Michael Holmes and Pamela Ovadje; kinesiology student Yasina Somani and psychology student Brianne Brooker.

CBC Radio host Tony Doucette will act as master of ceremonies for the finals, which begin at 2 p.m. March 31 in Ambassador Auditorium, CAW Student Centre. Admission is free and open to the public—all those in attendance can vote their favourites for the people’s choice award.
