Eight students advance to 3MT finals

Eight Cornell research degree students will be advancing to the final round of the 2024 Three Minute Thesis competition (3MT), having competed in a pool of 22 students in the preliminary round. The students and their fields are:

  • Cátia Dombaxe, biomedical engineering
  • Amanda Domingues, science and technology studies
  • Sharada Gopal, biomedical and biological sciences
  • Viviana Maymi, biomedical and biological sciences
  • Agustín Olivo, animal science
  • Jeremy Richardson, psychology
  • Meagan Sundstrom, physics
  • Sterling Williams-Ceci, information science.

The final competition will be held live and in person at G10 Biotechnology Building on Wednesday, March 20 at 3 pm. A panel of judges with connections to the Cornell community will evaluate students on how well they presented a compelling story on their thesis or dissertation and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience with the aid of only one, static slide.
