This summer, TSBE Centre EngD student Bridget Ogwezi beat 11 other finalists to win the Three Minute Thesis competition run by the University of Reading’s Graduate School.
The competition is a popular part of the school’s annual Doctoral Research Conference where researchers have 3 minutes to present their projects in a fun and engaging way. The topics ranged from thought-controlled devices to female fertility and included Bridget’s presentation ‘A naturally adaptable facade element’.
Bridget explained her research project, which aims to reduce buildings’ energy consumption by developing innovative materials for facades to control the internal environment.
The presentation also won the People’s Choice Award, voted for by the conference delegates.
