Adam Cutright and Yi He Prevail in 3MT Contests

November saw ICMT students participate in two Three Minute Thesis, also known as 3MT, contests. As the name suggests, students have a maximum of 3 minutes to concisely present their work to a general audience. Presenting on "Understanding and Enhancing Corrosion Inhibition" Yi He won the university-wide 3MT contest that occurred during OHIO's International Education Week Global Research Symposium, placing ahead of finalists from Scripps College of Communication and the Honors Tutorial College. Adam Cutright prevailed in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering's own 3MT contest presenting on "Impact of Souring on Corrosion Product Layers", with Yi placing third. Yi is advised by Associate Professor Marc Singer and Adam by Research Professor David Young. In response to the news, Center Director Prof. Srdjan Nesic stated, "Their success is evidence of the strong emphasis on developing communication skills - a key objective sought for everyone working in ICMT. This is a major feather in their cap."
