ITR student Yinyue Qiu has just won the ITEE Division final of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.
Yinyue with fellow ITR students Quoc Bao Nguyen, Mohmed Ali Tebbi, Qun Zhang, and Mohmed Salah faced tough competition in a total field of 24 students from across the division’s diverse research areas of Information Technology, Engineering and the Environment.
ITR Acting Director Mr Jeff Kasparian congratulated all the students and said he was especially excited about the win as this was now the second consecutive year that an ITR student has won the Divisional 3MT competition.
As Yinyue described so well in her presentation, the aim of her research is to find a more efficient way for in-body medical devices to communicate their information, a function which currently gobbles up an excessive amount of the device’s battery life.
Yinyue will now represent the ITEE Division at the UniSA-wide 3MT final on 10 September, at the newly constructed SAHMRI Building on North Terrace, Adelaide.
