Dr Ornwipa Thamsuwan wins 3-Minute Postdoc Competition!

Congratulations to Dr. Ornwipa Thamsuwan, who was awarded the 'Outstanding Presenter' prize at the University of Saskatchewan 3-Minute Postdoc competition. Dr. Thamsuwan's presentation described her SHRF-funded project titled: Evaluating the use of a passive exoskeleton as a potential intervention for mitigating low back pain risk factors in farmers.

The 3 Minute Postdoc (3MP) Competition was hosted in Louis Loft on October 3 by the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (CGPS).

The 3MP is a university-wide friendly competition where competitors have 1 static slide and 3 minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their postdoctoral research to a non-specialist audience.  The goal of this event is to give presenters a chance to gain communication experience via public speaking and showcase their research to a broad and diverse audience. This event is modeled after the UBC 3-Minute Postdoc Slam and the Graduate Students’ Association Three Minute Thesis event, with a few adjustments.  Three Minute Thesis originated at the University of Queensland in 2008.

 

There is a real challenge in explaining a complex project briefly and in plain language.  Congratulations on meeting this challenge with excellence!
