Graduate student Andrew Clark was placed third in the 3 Minute Thesis competition held on November 13, 2019. The 3 Minute Thesis is a competition put on by the Tufts Graduate Student Council (GSC) to “cultivate students academic, presentation, and research communication skills.” The competitors have 3 minutes to present their research to a non-specialist audience using only 1 slide. Quite a tall order for such a short presentation! 14 graduate students from both the School of Engineering and School of Arts and Sciences presented, and were judged by a panel of professors and the Deans of SOE and GSAS. Andrew’s presentation was titled “How to Build a Better Battery” and it focused on the work being done in collaboration with the Panzer Lab, which focuses on characterizing fully zwitterionic copolymers designed to be solid polymer electrolytes in next generation lithium batteries.
