Congratulations to Michelle Kramer, 4th-year Cognitive Neuroscience graduate student, who competed yesterday in the GW 3-minute Thesis (3MT) competition. This is a fun event where Ph.D. students have 3 minutes to present their dissertation project. Michelle went up against a strong group of excellent presenters, and she won both the 3rd place award AND the People’s Choice Award!
When you see her in the halls and have *exactly* 3 minutes to spare…ask her what her dissertation work is about!
Congratulations on these recent fellowships awarded to Psychology folks!
