Two IGERT Students, Destenie Nock and Kate McClellan have advanced to the final round of Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. This is the first year that this competition will be held at UMass Amherst. In the final round of the competition 10 students will each have to explain their research to a general audience in 3 minutes or less. Destenie's talk focuses on how reliability and sustainability goals impact which technologies we integrate to the power grid (i.e. Natural Gas vs Offshore Wind), while Kate's talk details how shark electroreception may affect their interaction with offshore wind energy power cables. The final round is open to the public, and will be held March 24th, 4-6pm in the Student Union Ballroom.
