Two Ph.D. students from the College of Sciences will be competing in the final round of the Georgia Tech Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition. 

  • Deborah Ferguson, Physics
    Testing General Relativity With Gravitational Waves
  • Emily Hokett, Psychology
    General Sleep Patterns Predict Associative Memory Retrieval in Older Adults

Ferguson's research is in the fields of numerical reelativity and strong field gravity. Her advisor is School of Physics Professor Deirdre Shoemaker.

Hokett's research is in the fields of cognition and brain science. Her advisor is School of Psychology Associate Professor Audrey Duarte. 

Since 2015, Georgia Tech's 3MT competition has helped graduate students hone their communication skills by challenging them to share their research in three minutes in a way anyone could understand.

The entire campus community is invited to come out and support the graduate students competiting in the final round of the 2018 competition.
