Three Minute Thesis winners announced for 2016

Congratulations to the Three Minute Thesis Winners

Each year Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students are invited to participate in the Three Minute Thesis Competition for a chance to present their thesis, win travel grants, and represent Bond University at the Asia-Pacific competition. Today 18 HDR students participated in the event.

Heidi Walkden (centre) won the competition with her presentation Does Breathing Kill? - a synopsis of her PhD thesis which explores bacterial infection of the brain.

Runner up Gina Cleo (left) presented her thesis Maintaining weight loss: a look at habits. Her research studies the phenomena of habit-based interventions for the long-term maintenance of weight loss and assesses whether making new habits, or breaking old habits is more effective.

The People's Choice Award went to Yuki Byambasuren (right), and her topic of Health apps: innovation without evaluation. Her PhD thesis explores the unique potential of smartphone health apps, the evidence behind them and their practical application in primary care settings.

All three of the winners today were from the Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine.

Thank you to all of the Bond HDR students who participated in the event. The quality of your work was evident in your presentations.
