Missouri S&T’s 3-Minute Thesis (3MT) winner Siddesh Umapathi represented S&T at a regional competition on March 21. Umapathi, a Ph.D. candidate in chemistry, competed at the Regional 3MT competition hosted at the 75th Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools (MAGS) Annual Meeting in St. Louis.

To advance to the regional contest, Umapathi competed against 18 other Miners. The 3-Minute Thesis is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland that challenges research graduate students to present a compelling oration on their thesis in just three minutes using language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

“I was very impressed by Siddesh’s presentation titled ‘Keep the Cars Running: Hydrogen as a Potential Fuel,’” says Dr. Costas Tsatsoulis, vice chancellor for research and dean of graduate studies at S&T. “In a mere three minutes he managed to motivate and explain his work to what was essentially a lay audience.”
