Reduce the risk of helicopter accidents. Predict how an oil spill will play out. Find a new alternative to lithium batteries. Could you explain how to do any of these in three minutes?

On Nov. 14, 18 Ph.D. students and one master’s student took on the challenge of explaining these topics and others during the final round of Georgia Tech’s annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition. 

First prize and a $2,000 research travel grant went to Paola Zanella, a doctoral student in Aerospace Engineering, for her presentation, “Mitigation of Helicopter Accidents Related to Loss of Tail Rotor Effectiveness.”
