Wow them!

Yesterday I was privileged to be invited to help judge the Postgraduate Research Forum Speakers at a 3-minute thesis pitch event at the UNSW School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences (UNSW BEES). What a fantastic event! During this jam-packed morning, I got to hear about the amazing and highly varied research that is being conducted at UNSW BEES and to listen to post-graduate speakers articulate their findings to a general audience. From investigations in morbidity in tailor populations through to discussions on ancient bacterial fossils found in West Australian sediments, the competition centered around the heart of science communication!
