Kingston University PhD student wins Vitae Three Minute Thesis national final

Kingston University postgraduate engineering student Ana Pavlovic secured the judge’s choice award at the national final year’s Vitae Three Minute Thesis competition with a compelling and engaging research presentation. The annual academic competition challenges students to deliver a spoken presentation on their research topic and its significance in just 180 seconds, alongside an image of their choice. Ana won plaudits from the judges for making her complex research into sustainable alternative materials for reinforcing concrete accessible and interesting through the use of a clever and fun giraffe toy analogy. Her prize was £3,000 in UKRI grant funding for public engagement activities, and an engraved trophy.
