CBEE represented at 3MT semi-final for 3 consecutive years

Jayashree Yalamanchili, 2021 GEARS 3MT winner

Jayashree Yalamanchili, PhD candidate, participated in the semi-final 3MT competition during the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Conference of Southern Graduate Schools in Raleigh, NC. Her talk was titled "The fate of transition metals in phosphate-based acellular assays used to determine Particulate Matter (PM) reactivity". Jayashree is advised by Dr. Christopher Hennigan and Dr. Brian Reed.  

Jayashree won the GEARS 3MT conducted at UMBC in May 2021. She is the third doctoral student in the department to win the GEARS 3MT and the fourth GEARS 3MT winner to be advised by a faculty member in CBEE. 

3MT celebrates the exciting research conducted by Ph.D. students. Developed by The University of Queensland, the exercise cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

We are exceedingly proud of Jayashree's success and that of CBEE students in past 3MT competitions!
