My talk Predicting When and Where Autumn Foliage Coloration Will Peak in the United States, which is related with my dissertation research has been advanced to the final round to the UNC-Chapel Hill 3MT thesis competition. The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition that assists current graduate students with fostering effective presentation and communication skills. Participants have just three minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research project to a non-specialist audience. 3MT was developed by The University of Queensland in 2008, and is now held in more than 600 universities in 65 countries around the world. Master’s and Doctoral students enrolled at UNC from any discipline administered by The Graduate School are welcome to register and participate in the competition. All are welcome to serve as audience members throughout the competition’s preliminary and final rounds. You can check the details here
